“I have resigned from al-Jazirah newspaper,” Jaber said on Twitter Tuesday night, “due to their repeated infringement of my intellectual rights.”
Jaber attached a photo of the resignation letter he sent to the newspaper editor Khaled al-Malik along with his original cartoon that the paper edited without his knowledge.
