Al-Hurriya (Arabic: الحرية‎), (English: The Liberty) variously transcribed as al-Hourriya, al-Hurriyeh, etc.) is a Palestinian political newspaper affiliated with the Marxist-Leninist Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP). First published in Beirut on January 4, 1960,[1] by the Arab Nationalist Movement (ANM), under the editorship of Muhsin Ibrahim it became increasingly socialist, against the opposition of ANM founders and older members.[2]

In 1969 al-Hurriya became the joint organ of the DFLP and the Communist Action Organization in Lebanon. Since 1977 it is the central organ of DFLP.[1]

Al-Hurriya is today edited in Syria, but published in several countries in the Arab world. It reports mainly on party matters and Palestinian politics.
