Leading Israeli and Palestinian Journalists Meet in Istanbul

On August 12 to 14, the Palestinian Peace Coalition-Geneva Initiative, together with H.L. Education for Peace, hosted 15 leading Israeli and Palestinian journalists at a joint seminar in Istanbul.
As part of our joint efforts, the Palestinian Peace Coalition-Geneva Initiative and H.L. Education for Peace seek to bring together target populations from both sides of the conflict. These groups include mayors and municipal leaders, politicians, parliamentary assistants and more.
 
On August 12 to 14 we held a seminar in Istanbul for a group of 15 Israeli and Palestinian journalists from leading media sources in Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Among the attendees were representatives from Channel 10, Channel 2, Yediot Aharonot, Ha'aretz, Walla News and Israel Hayom on the Israeli side, and Al Hayat Al Jadida, Al Ayyam, Ma'an News, AP on the Palestinian side. For two days, participants debated media coverage of the conflict on both sides, as well as their thoughts on reporting from the United Nations General Assembly in September.
 
A Knesset Channel journalist who attended the seminar reported that the activities opened his eyes to the way in which his Palestinian counterparts view the UN process in September.
