Hamas said it decided to ban dealing or working with "Zionist media outlets because they are hostile."

Hamas warned Palestinian journalists and media employees from working with or helping their Israeli counterparts.

In the West Bank, the Palestinian Authority has not officially banned Palestinians from working with the Israeli media.

However, many PA officials and political figures refuse to talk to Israeli media organizations.

The Fatah-dominated Palestinian Journalists Syndicate recently banned its members from holding meetings with Israeli journalists as part of a campaign to combat "normalization" between the two sides.
