Breaking new ground
A key and independent news resource for this historic but troubled region.
Middle East Star has been in business since 2004 reporting on the latest developments in the Middle East, particularly in relation to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
The site, with the motto Breaking new ground has been at the forefront for the most part of the occupation of Iraq, the Arab Spring in Egypt, and the continuing wars in Syria and Yemen, and prior to that, Libya.
Reports cover a broad area of the Middle East and includes stories from countries such as Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar and Yemen, in addition of course to Israel and the Palestinian territories.
Middle East Star syndicates its news through its RSS feeds and social media networks, email subscriptions, and the posting of content on other sites.

Mission: Middle East Star was conceived in 2002 and launched two years later to provide up-to-the minute local news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals.

The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Middle East Star, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of region.
