Libel Debunked: “Israeli Settlers” Killed Palestinian National Security Officer Alaa Zahran

Quds News Network, as well as some other anti-Israel propaganda sites, have blamed the killing of Alaa Zahran, a member of the Palestinian National Security service, on “Israeli settlers.”

qnn PA post

Except that is not what happened.

Initial reports indicated that Israeli settlers fired on the security officer’s vehicle. Despite the Palestinian reports, initial investigations carried out by the Israeli and Palestinian security forces indicated that the shooting was not carried out by Israeli settlers but rather by Palestinians in an internal incident.

And if you are not convinced by the Jerusalem Post, this Arabic report admits to the investigation and also indicates it might not have been as the propaganda sites are claiming.

A Palestinian youth was killed at dawn today, Tuesday, in a shooting attack when he was traveling in his vehicle near the settlement of “Homish” near Nablus, and the investigation is underway whether the crime was caused by an attack by settlers, or if the background of the crime is criminal.
