Al-Madina (Arabic: المدينة‎) is an Arabic local newspaper, printed weekly in tabloid format, published and distributed for free in Israel.

History

Al-Madina appears in two editions. One edition is published in Haifa and distributed in the north of Israel in 15,000 copies since 2004. Its editor-in-chief is Firas Khatib.[1] Until 2006, the editor-in-chief was Ala Hlehel, an Arab-Israeli writer and two-time winner of the[2] A. M. Qattan Foundation Literature Awards. The other edition is published in Tel Aviv, with 12,000 copies distributed throughout central Israel since 2006. The editor-in-chief is Ghaleb Kiwan, who is also a news reporter for Arabic-language broadcasts on the Israeli cable provider HOT[3]

In addition to international, national and local news coverage, the paper publishes opinion pieces and articles on health, sports, arts and culture.

An article published on the 20th of May 2011 about the 2011 Israeli border demonstrations. The article shows a photo of Palestinian demonstrators from Syria passing the border to Israel. The photo's visual resemblance to Abed Abdi's painting "Fleeing from the massacre", which describes the 1948 Palestinian exodus, is remarkable.
