PA TV instructs how to use beatings for marital issues

Palestinian Media Watch reports that official PA Television sanctioned domestic violence but advised those who "use beatings and violence to solve their marital problems to " read the Quranic verse again." adding that  "there are solutions before giving beatings. If you have to, there are religious rules for beatings that must be obeyed. Guys, the goal of the beatings is rebuke in a way that does not cause injury. You can even go ask someone about it."

A mufti (religious leader) explained on PA Television how men should hit their wives when the previous steps of "warning them" and "separating from them in bed" have not worked: "Not hitting that will bring the police, and break her hand and cause bleeding, or hitting that makes the face ugly."
