Hamas’s new satellite television channel: a step forward in Hamas’s battle for hearts and minds

A Hamas-operated satellite broadcasting station named � The Light of Al-Aqsa� (Saraj al-Aqsa 1) started broadcasting on October 15 in the afternoon. For the time being, the station airs archive footage of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and songs of religious character. The station will broadcast from Dubai (where the station manager, Ziyad al-Hasanat, is based) and the content will originate from Gaza (Dunya al-Watan, October 10). 2
