Gaza’s Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh praised the media and journalists as “partners in the victory” against Israel.

During a ceremony to honor “martyrs of the media,” which was organized by the Hamas-controlled Ministry of Information, Hanieyahsaid that the media “contributed to the steadfastness of the Palestinian people.”

He said, “The Palestinian people has triumphed over the Israeli aggression on all levels, including militarily, politically and morally and in the media.”

Haniyeh said that “the men of the Palestinian media have formed the source from which the world’s media derived all that was going on in Gaza…”

Haniyeh is referring to Hamas media outlets such as Al Aqsa TV, which mainstream media outlets sometimes describe as journalists, and praises them for influencing Western mainstream media.
