Libel Debunked: Jews Attacked & Injured Palestinian Arab Child Yazan Al-Rajabi

This week, anti-Israel propagandists accused Israeli Jews of attacking palestinian Arab child Yazan Al-Rajabi. As “proof”, they posted a photo of the injured child.

This includes Israeli-Arab MK Ahmad Tibi:

Once again, the accusation is false.

According to Kan’s Palestinian affairs correspondent Nurit Yohanan, the child sustained these injuries after he fell off his bike.

Which begs the questions: Why should you believe this Israeli journalist to be impartial?

Well, Nurit Yohanan is not pro-Israel, and has even been accused of being “pro-palestinian.” For example, she once caused an uproar after tweeting it had been a “very difficult night in Nablus” following the killing of some terrorists there:

And there are other anti-Israel tweets from her.

The (left-wing) fact checker Bodkim confirmed Nurit Yohanan’s reporting to be true in this case:

By the way, I fully expect the haters to continue blaming us for the boy’s injuries, since he apparently fell off his bike out of fear. They have, after all, blamed us before for scaring a child into having a heart attack.

Update: An anti-Israel sources admits he fell of his bike, and fulfils my prediction above (hat tip: Adin).
