Forth: Social Media
- 87.2% of youth in the Palestinian Territory watch television on a daily basis. (According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) - 12/8/2012).
A very important media tool.

- There is a real effort to build partnerships with the civil society organizations.
- They try to reach the marginalized and remote areas.

- The problem is that it has a Partisan nature.
- There is no media strategy in the advocacy issues and media campaigns.
- It relays the events and news but does not create it, and thus has a limited effect.
- Palestine TV station is a satellite station, and this is an important point.
