Hamas block on Israeli media

Hamas has issued a ban to prevent officials and Palestinian journalists from co-operating with Israeli media, according to various reports.

Hamas leaders based in Gaza will no longer be available for interviews with Israeli journalists following an order that was issued this week.

"The government has decided to bar co-operation or work with Zionist media due to its hostility,” the order read.

“The prohibition applies to all Palestinian reporters and journalists."
