You are watching Al Aqsa Channel channel from Palestine. The channel's category is Other and the speaking language is Arabic.

Al-Aqsa TV (Arabic: قناة الأقصى‎) is the official Hamas-run television channel named after the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Its programming includes news and propaganda promoting Hamas, children's shows (such as Tomorrow's Pioneers), and religiously inspired entertainment. It is currently directed by Palestinian Legislative Council member Fathi Hamad.

The station began broadcasting in the Gaza Strip on January 9, 2006 after Hamas won a sweeping victory in Palestinian parliamentary elections. On January 22, 2006, the Palestinian public prosecutor Ahmed Maghni decided to close down a television station because it did not have the necessary broadcast license, but the decision was never enforced.

On December 29, 2008, during the Gaza War, Israeli aircraft repeatedly bombed the al-Aqsa television station headquarters in Gaza City. The building was completely destroyed, but the station continued to broadcast from a mobile TV unit.

On July 29, 2014, during the 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict, an Israeli air strike hit a media building housing al-Aqsa TV and al-Aqsa Radio channel in the centre of Gaza City early on in the morning. The television station continued to broadcast, but the radio station went silent. The radio station has since come back on the air.

On November 12, 2018, Israel bombed the station building after launching at least five non-exploding missiles nearby as warnings to evacuate followed a surge in cross-border fighting. In 2019 after the Shin Bet assessed that al-Aqsa TV used coded messages to recruit operatives to Hamas, the Israeli Ministry of Defense designated al-Aqsa TV as a terrorist organization.
