The Hamas terror group has launched a TV station in the Gaza Strip, a first step toward setting up a satellite station like the one Hezbollah runs in Lebanon, Hamas officials said Monday. The Al Aksa Television station is being set up just weeks before the Palestinians' Jan. 25 parliamentary election, and if up and running in time, could help Hamas in its campaign, analysts said. Hamas presents a serious challenge to the ruling Fatah party, which has led the Palestinian Authority since its establishment in 1994.
