( Israel’s Civil Administration division of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Unit raided a Palestinian publishing house in Ramallah that has been publishing newspapers supporting terrorist groups such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

"Israeli authorities informed the newspaper that it would not allow the printing and distribution of newspapers that allegedly incite against Israel, referring to the three newspapers—Falastin, Al-Resala, and Al-Istiqlal,” said the Palestinian Journalists' Syndicate, according to Israel Hayom

The headquarters of the Al-Ayyam newspaper began publishing the three newspapers earlier this month after the Palestinian unity deal between Hamas and Fatah was reached. After the raid, the publishing house agreed to stop printing the newspapers.
