Hamas-affiliated TV channel stays on air despite announcement

The Hamas-affiliated Al-Aqsa TV is still on air even though it announced earlier this week that its broadcast would stop this evening due to financial woes.

Hamas Politburo chairman Ismail Haniyeh declares in a statement that Al-Aqsa TV’s broadcast will not be halted. He also says a “clear and direct decision” was made to keep the channel on air.
