Palestine TV in Gaza falls into Hamas hands
Monday, June 18th, 2007

The Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation has been paralyzed since it was taken over by Hamas over the weekend. PBC employees in Gaza are barred from reaching their workplace, while Hamas has confiscated the broadcasting equipment, studios and archives and are using it for their own programming.

The Palestinian television channel is no longer transmitting pictures from Gaza, and has transferred all of its broadcasting to Ramallah. PBC Chairman Bassem Abu Sumayya said the PBC was using another frequency for its broadcasts. The building accommodating the Voice of Palestine radio station was set alight.
