Saudi-Company Owned Media Outlet Refers to “Occupied Territories” By Their Real, Jewish Name

Asharq Al-Awsat is an Arabic international newspaper headquartered in London, published by the Saudi Media Research Group, which was once referred to by the NY Times as “one of the oldest and most influential in the region.”

Definitely not where you would expect the so-called “occupied territories” to be referred to by their actual name (hat tip: Michal).

Iran and the possible collapse of the Palestinian Authority (PA) are two threats facing Israel, according to Brigadier General Dror Shalom, head of the Research Division of Israel’s Military Intelligence Directorate.

Shalom told Yedioth Ahronoth daily that the threat of terrorism is increasing especially that the youth in Judea and Samaria, in the West Bank, can’t earn a living amid the coronavirus pandemic and its economic repercussions.

At least not where I would have expected them to be thus mentioned before events of the last few months. Now with the palestinians continuing to verbally attack the gulf states, and Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan attacking the palestinian leadership, who knows. Perhaps we will see more of this.
