The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

Qatar to Inject Additional $150 Million in Aid to Gaza Strip

Qatar says it will provide another $150 million into the Gaza Strip over the course of six months. A Monday tweet by the Doha-based Qatari Committee to Rebuild Gaza said the money would be used to help contain the coronavirus outbreak – the Hamas-run Health Ministry announced the first two confirmed cases there early on Sunday – and help underwrite UN humanitarian programs. Qatar has been injecting cash into the coastal enclave on a monthly basis to be used for direct distribution via post offices for payment of $100 to as many as 120,000 impoverished households. Last month it promised to ramp up this aid by $15 million per month. Doha has also sent funds to be used to improve Gaza’s decaying infrastructure, and last December it donated 22 fire trucks and emergency vehicles.
