Voice of Palestine

The Voice of Palestine (Arabic: صوت فلسطين) is a radio station based in Ramallah. It is a subsidiary of the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation,[1] under the control of the Palestinian Authority. The station was originally known as the Voice of Palestinian Revolution before the 1993 Oslo Accords,[1] and was launched on 17 October 1998. The first experimental transmissions included music programs, songs and news bulletins in addition to health, culture, and sports programs.

On 12 October 2000 – shortly after the outbreak of the Second Intifada – successive Israeli Air Force raids stopped transmission of the Voice of Palestine, destroying the technical equipment used for transmission. Currently the radio service broadcasts on shortwave (AM).[2]
