Hamas spokesman Ihab al-Ghussein has commended Arabic-language news channel Al-Alam for its wide coverage of the Israeli crimes in the ongoing deadly offensive in the besieged Gaza Strip.

“Your reliable channel has provided a round-the-clock coverage of the developments in the besieged Gaza Strip and reflected the crimes committed by Israel since the beginning of the war on Gaza,” Ghussein said in an interview with Al-Alam on Monday.

The Israeli war on the Gaza Strip, which began on July 8, has claimed over 1,940 lives, with most of the victims were civilians. Nearly 10,000 others have also been wounded in the attacks.

Latest tallies show that nearly 470 Palestinian children have so far lost their lives in the Israeli attacks against the impoverished Gaza Strip. Children also make up almost one-third of the injured.

Ghussein also criticized certain Arab media for not fulfilling their professional responsibilities and supporting the Israeli regime in the onslaught on the impoverished enclave.

The Palestinian official added that a number of journalists have been killed or injured during the Israeli attacks.

Gaza has been under Israel’s blockade since June 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standards of living and poverty.
