For immediate release:


The Palestine News Network, as the first operational independent
Palestinian news agency, received the first official license in the West
Bank from the PA Ministry of Information this week.

PA Minister of Information, Nabil Sha'ath commented, "The license for PNN comes within the framework of democracy and freedom of the press."
After four years of operations, PNN is published in Arabic, English, Hebrew, and French, with Spanish and German soon to come in order to ensure that the international community receives unbiased, accurate,
and up-to-the minute news from the ground.
Our network of reporters includes 11 Palestinians from throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip, four multi-lingual reporters and editors, and a professional tech-team. Ten radio stations broadcast our Arabic news and 12 television stations run the PNN news ticker.
The English radio program This Week in Review and daily news bulletins also run throughout stations in the US.
Director of the Union of Electronic Media, Mohib Nawati, commented from Gaza City, "We hope that PNN, as the first independent news agency in the West Bank, will continue to be objective news source
providing a giant leap forward in the quality of the Palestinian media."
As an independent, licensed news agency PNN is dedicated to bringing
the news from Palestine to the world in order to encourage understanding of the situation, to bring accuracy to reporting about the Middle East, and to provide professional work experience and protection for Palestinian journalists who risk their lives daily in order to report the news. []
