The broadcasting arm of the Palestinian Authority (PA). It operates both radio (Voice of Palestine) and television stations from its offices and studios in Ramallah. (It is not a monopoly; there are commercial broadcasters in the Palestinian territories, as well as ground and satellite stations available from other countries.) It began operations in 1994 and is under the direct control of Yasir Arafat rather than the PA Ministry of Information. It has been criticized for adhering to the official view, and has been accused by Israel of inciting violence and antisemitism.
