GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A group of volunteers in Gaza has launched a radio station on Facebook, broadcasting to the world in five languages.
Issam Abu Khalil had the idea for the station five years ago, and with the help of 35 volunteers, The Facebook Voice from Gaza
, has connected with Palestinians around the world.
The group has no funding. "I work from morning to dawn to keep the radio effective and successful," Abu Khalil told Ma'an.
The radio shows tackle issues from refugees to prisoners and the Diaspora, and some are broadcast on local radio stations.
Former hunger-striker Mahmoud Sarsak has a program, "A detainee's story," on which he discusses his experience in Israeli jails.
"We reveal to the world the Israeli brutality inside Israeli jails," Sarsak told Ma'an.
