The Gaza Strip’s Hamas prime minister on Saturday ordered the reopening of a Palestinian news agency closed in July for alleged “false” reporting of Hamas aid to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.
“Prime Minister Ismail Haniya ordered reopening Maan (agency) from tomorrow morning,” government spokesman Ihab al-Hussein told AFP.
The decision was taken at a meeting between Haniya and Palestinian faction leaders to discuss renewing unity talks. Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas’s Fatah movement was not represented at the meeting. Read more from AFP.
