Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

40 Rockets Fired From Gaza on Southern Israel 

After a long lull, residents of southern Israel once again had to sprint for fortified rooms and bomb shelters as Gaza terror groups fired some 40 rockets into Israeli territory. The rocket attacks began late Friday night, stretching into Saturday morning; several more rockets were fired on Saturday night. Some of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system and the rest landed in empty fields. Some damage was reported. Several other rockets landed in Gazan territory. The Israel Defense Forces responded to the rocket attacks with airstrikes on Hamas targets in Gaza, including rocket launchers and what the military described as “underground infrastructure.” The groups in Gaza said the attacks were in response to the violent clashes between Palestinians and Jews and Israeli security forces in Jerusalem. In the wake of the attacks, the IDF announced that Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi would postpone a scheduled trip to the United States. Hamas on Sunday called on the armed factions in Gaza to “keep their fingers on the trigger.”
