    A female-led television station has officially launched in Gaza.

    Some have already criticised the new undertaking, objecting to the appearance of the volunteer female presenters and to the topics they will discuss.

    Taif TV's debut came just days after Hamas authorities tried to block the station from broadcasting, saying it did not have the correct license.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from Gaza.
