The IDF has confirmed scoring direct hits overnight on a terror tunnel in the central Gaza Strip, a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip and a second terror activity site in the central Gaza Strip, with secondary blasts being identified in two of the three targets.
The palestinians have claimed one of the targets was a medicine warehouse. Hamas, in particular, is playing up the “medicine warehouse” angle.
Can you guess which version the foreign press photographers have gone with?

And there’s plenty more examples.
This, despite the existence of the secondary explosions indicating the storage of weapons and explosives, as well as Hamas’ track record in using inconspicuous locations for rocket launching and claiming locations struck were mere factories.
