BEIRUT: Information Minister Ramzi Joreige announced Thursday that he supported an initiative to broadcast one united newscast by TV channels Saturday to support Gaza.

“I was notified that the newscast is being produced, and that it will air Saturday night, and I asked Tele Liban to contribute to this plan that aims to show solidarity with the Palestinian people in face of crimes against humanity committed by the Israeli army,” he said.

Joreige praised the collaborative efforts by As-Safir newspaper’s Editor in Chief Talal Salman, who is meeting Lebanese and Palestinian TV channels to ensure the success of the newscast.

“Its echo will reach the whole world,” the minister said.
