Ynetnews is the online English-language Israeli news website of Yedioth Ahronoth, Israel’s most-read newspaper, and the Hebrew news portal, Ynet.[1][2] It is part of the Yedioth Media Group,[3] which also owns stock in the Israeli TV Channel "Channel 2"; "HOT", the Cable TV company, weekly local newspapers, magazines, and other non-media companies.

History[edit]

Ynetnews was established in 2005 in Tel Aviv to provide reporting and news from Israel and the Middle East to the Israeli community and its readers.[4]

The current managing editor of Ynetnews, Sara Miller, was formerly chief editor of the Haaretz website and managing editor of JPost.com, the website of the Jerusalem Post. The founding editor of Ynetnews, Alan Abbey, left in the summer of 2005 to serve as Internet Director for Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem.

Ynetnews' translators and editors provide coverage of news from Israel, Jewish World and the Middle East, based on the reporting and writing from Ynet, Yedioth Ahronoth, and other publications of its parent, the Yedioth Group. It regularly features renowned Yedioth commentators such as Nahum Barnea, Ron Ben-Yishai, Eitan Haber, Smadar Perry, Ronen Bergman, Shimon Shiffer, and Ariana Melamed. It also produces original content and in-depth reporting, commentary, and analysis.
