History
Al Masirah was founded by the Ansarullah movement (Houthis) in January 2012 in Beirut, Lebanon and is located next to Hezbollah’s Al Manar TV with backup studios at Hezbollah headquarters.[3] On 8 October 2020, Twitter suspended the account of Al Masirah.[5]
Theme
Almasirah introduces itself as a network that "seeks to spread awareness and values of justice among different segments of Arab and Islamic societies in the context of the Qur'anic culture. It gives priority to the Palestinian cause. It works to support the causes of the vulnerable and counter the falsification of the media of the arrogant powers." [6]
Channel frequency during Saudi-led coalition on Yemen
On 10 May 2015, Al Masirah, along with other anti-Saudi channels, were closed on Nile Sat & Euro Sat[7] several times[8] due to Saudi pressure on the satellite companies, which made Al Masirah broadcast its signal instead on the Russian satellite Express AM 44.[9] After several months of being banned on Nile Sat, broadcast is now online on Nile Sat.
Killed journalists and media workers
After the Houthi takeover in Yemen, Al Masirah lost a number of employees due to conflict.
