Gaza City, Palestine

The Hamas resistance group said Tuesday the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya news channel is leading a “misleading and distorting” campaign that is based on “lies and slanders” from Israel’s security service.

The campaign is aimed at “affecting the Palestinian resistance,” according to Hamas.

“What the Al-Arabiya channel and other media outlets are doing is fully consistent with the policies of the Zionist occupation and its continuing plans of aggression against our people, and erasing its historical rights,” the group said in a statement.

Al-Arabiya is a Saudi-owned channel broadcast from the United Arab Emirates.
