Pro-Hamas Newspaper Launched in Gaza

From Pro-Hamas Newspaper Launched in Gaza:

Palestinian supporters of Hamas launched a new newspaper on Thursday. Palestine is the pro-Islamist answer to the three largest Palestinian newspapers which have longstanding ties to Fatah, the secular faction of Mahmoud Abbas. It is also the first Palestinian newspaper to be printed in Gaza. The other newspapers are produced in the West Bank, which is dominated by Fatah. Abbas controls the Palestine Broadcasting Corporation, which includes television and radio.
