Why You Shouldn’t Trust Palestinian Reports

Here is yet another example of why you should approach palestinian reports with suspicion:

Egyptian girl killed by Israeli fire near Gaza border

A thirteen-year-old Egyptian girl was killed by Israeli fire near the border with the Gaza Strip, local residents said.

Egyptian residents near the borders with the Gaza Strip said that Samah Abu Jarad received a gunshot to the head while she was playing in front of her family house, about 700 meters from the Kerem Shalom crossing.

Reuters quoted Egyptian officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, as saying that investigations are underway to discover the source of the gunshot that killed the girl.

Sheikh Darweesh Abu Jarad, a prominent member of the girl’s family said the deadly gunshot was likely to have been fired from an Israeli monitoring tower, close to her home.

Israeli army sources also said the incident is being investigated.

In other words, despite the fact that the source of the gunfire is still unclear and is being investigated, Ma’an news are carrying a headline suggesting it is a forgone conclusion.

Al Dura anyone?
