During the Mandate era and the first decades following independence, there were numerous newspapers owned and associated with political parties. They had mostly been discontinued by the 1970s, though a few remain, including Hamodia (Agudat Yisrael), al-Ittihad (Maki) and Yated Ne'eman (Degel HaTorah).
