The radio’s director highlighted that “we have more than two million views for our Facebook videos in addition to a million views on the Rawafed Education website, the first educational site in Palestine, that provides students with supporting materials as well as previous exam forms to help them overcome this crisis.”

The authorities in Gaza decided to extend the closure of all educational institutions in the strip until the end of March.
