Al-Sha'b (The People) was a current events newspaper first published on November 11th, 1946. According to the newspaper, the owner (and publisher) was the Local Press Society Ltd.–Jaffa. Scholars propose two alternatives for the newspaper’s ownership. According to one group, the owner was Kan'an Abu Khadra, who was the newspaper’s editor-in-chief. Researchers in the other camp claim that the owner was Edmond Rock, whose is named as the CEO. The paper was opposed to both Mandatory rule and the Zionist project. The first page was devoted to reviews of national and international news, mainly events that impacted the Palestinian-Zionist struggle. The two inside pages were devoted to coverage of local news, including culture and literature. The back page featured translated articles from the European and American press. In addition, the newspaper covered the activities of the Zionist national institutions. The newspaper closed in 1948 because of the situation in the country at the time.
