Who we are?
Watan News is an independent Arab American news media corporation, issued by Watan News LLC. It was established in 1990 by a Palestinian American journalist, Nezam Mahdawi, in Washington, DC, as a monthly paper publication.
In 1993, Watan News released its work from Los Angeles, California-based, as its headquarter. Watan News creates world-class content that informs millions of audiences of Arab immigrants in the United States.
Watan News became a weekly printed newspaper, as it is unbiased when covering Arab countries’ political issues. It has also a bright history in covering human rights issues that media outlets are unable to cover due to censorship issues.
