GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Hamas-affiliated newspaper Felesteen on Saturday was distributed in the West Bank and East Jerusalem for the first time in seven years.
The Palestinian Authority's Ministry of Information announced earlier this week that it would allow the newspaper to be distributed outside the Gaza Strip.
Meanwhile, the West Bank and East Jerusalem newspapers al-Quds, al-Ayyam, and al-Hayaat al-Jadida were allowed to be distributed to Gaza on Monday.
The decision to distribute the newspapers comes after Hamas and the Fatah-led PLO signed a deal to end political division on April 23.
