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 Reboots Economy, Leaving Health Officials Anxious

Israel Reboots Economy, Leaving Health Officials Anxious

The Israeli government late Saturday night authorized the largest reopening of the nation’s economy in nearly a year, allowing practically all places of business to open starting Sunday morning. Shopping centers, street shops, museums and libraries will all be opened to the entire public, including citizens who have not been vaccinated for coronavirus, and will not even require temperature measurement. Restaurants and cafés will also be able to seat unvaccinated patrons outside, but those wishing to sit indoors will have to present their proof of inoculation. Entertainment and sporting venues also returned to activity in a limited capacity Sunday, opening their doors to vaccinated Israelis only. Most of the country’s students are now back in school as well. Health officials on Sunday admitted they were not entirely happy with the massive reopening and warned that some restrictions could return in the coming days if virus figures take a turn for the worse.
