Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas appointed a woman as their first English-language spokeswoman on Sunday.

Israa Al-Mudallal, 23, a journalist who spent years as a child in the United Kingdom, said in an interview that she would "address Western and Israeli media" and would "work to change media discourse, painting a different picture of Palestine and Gaza."

She added: "The Western media has begun to realize that the Israeli media falsifies the facts, and so we have to make a great effort to debunk Israeli falsehoods."

Al-Mudallal previously worked at the al-Kitab television station, and studied journalism and media at the Islamic University of Gaza.
