'Palestine Times' Hot Off the Press

Ha'aretz reports today:

The first privately owned English language daily, the "Palestine Times," was launched yesterday in the West Bank and Gaza, with its editors aiming to provide news about the region to English speakers abroad.

The 12-page newspaper will cover Palestinian affairs, the conflict with Israel and developments in the Arab community in Israel, said its editor-in-chief, Othman Haj Mohammed.

The last time, that we know of, that there was an English-language newspaper in the region with "Palestine" in the title was the pre-1948 predecessor to the Jewish-owned Jerusalem Post, then dubbed the Palestine Post.
