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.

Israel Inching Toward 1 Million Vaccinated as Effort Continues

Israel Inching Toward 1 Million Vaccinated as Effort Continues

Israel on Thursday continued its lightning-speed coronavirus vaccination effort, administering close to 150,000 shots to reach 800,000 people inoculated since its national “Lend a Shoulder” operation began two weeks ago. The country, one of the first to begin vaccinating its citizens, continues to pace the world with approximately 8% of the population receiving the first of two Pfizer shots necessary for 95% immunity to the virus. At the same time, Israel’s new infections and serious cases continue to climb precipitously, as the complete national shutdown imposed on Sunday – the third such closure since the pandemic’s outbreak – seems to be largely ignored by the public. Over 5,000 patients have been diagnosed daily for the past week, with test positivity rates nearing 6%. Over 3,300 have died from the virus, as the government, in the midst of yet another election cycle, seems largely disinterested in enforcing its own lockdown ordinances and irritating the general public.
