Israel National News: 6 Sources for Current Events Coverage

By    |   Tuesday, 02 September 2014 07:19 PM

Israelis and the world community have several options when it comes to finding Israel’s current national news.

Founded in 1932, the Jerusalem Post is the “No. 1 English news source on Israel, Mideast and Jewish World,” according to the publication’s website.

The Post covers the conflict between the Arab world and Israel, current events of the Middle East, Israel’s national conservation and green energy initiatives, and diaspora, the news of Jewish people living outside of Israel. In 2013, the Post started a Hebrew language version of the publication.

“In addition to constantly covering the news and current events, we are offering added value of the highest quality in the form of Israel’s most important journalists,” Doron Cohen, the Post’s editor, said last year when announcing the Hebrew version of the newspaper. “This is an extraordinary initiative uniting under one roof: print, radio and television in a variety of fields that everyone will find interesting.”

Another source of news about Israel and its role in the Middle East is Haaretz. The publication says it provides in-depth coverage of the Arab-Israeli conflict, news about Syria, and other current events of the Middle East.

Haaretz also has a section, "IDF’s Gaza Fallen," which highlights the soldiers of the Israeli Defense Forces that have been killed as part of Operation Protective Edge, the military initiative launched in the Gaza Strip against pro-Palestinian Hamas in July of this year.

“More than 60 IDF officers, NCOs and soldiers have been killed during Operation Protective Edge, making this campaign the costliest for Israel since the Second Lebanon War in 2006,” according to Haaretz. “Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, over 23,000 soldiers have been killed in the line of duty.”

Arutz Sheva is an Israeli media network that includes the newspaper Israel National News. The network offers “news, live radio broadcasts, political commentary, Arab press coverage and a video gallery,” according to the network’s website. The network also provides news in Hebrew, French, and Russian.

Arutz Sheva also has a YouTube channel and a radio network.

In addition to the YouTube channel, Arutz Sheva has a broadcast television station in Beit El, Israel, which “produces and airs news and talk shows about Zionist issues in English,” according to its website.

The Tazpit Press Service, or TPS, is yet another source of Israeli news. The TPS is an "Israeli communications company which provides comprehensive media services, addressing all facets of journalism and media coverage in Israel."

The news service also offers a training camp of sorts for foreign journalism college students to “provide them with an open view of Israel, together with various skills and tools to cover the Arab-Israeli conflict, and life in Israel in general,” the website says.

In 2005, Ynetnews was founded and is part of the Yedioth Media Group, which publishes Yedioth Ahronoth. Yedioth Ahronoth claims to be "Israel's most widely-read daily newspaper — as well as several popular magazines and dozens of local publications."

The Ynetnews organization "is designed to give its readers a holistic news experience" by covering news in Israel, the Jewish World, and the Middle East, as well as on the global stage.
