More Hames war crimes
The Gaza Health Ministry reported that an 8 month old girl was among those killed on Monday during border protests, the victim, the Hamas run ministry claimed, of Israeli tear gas. Leaving aside the question (unexplored by the media thus far) of why a Palestinian adult would bring a baby to violent protest, the claim that Israel was responsible for her death was undermined that same day by a Gaza health official, who said the baby, Layla Ghandour, “had a preexisting medical condition and that he did not believe her death was caused by tear gas”.
The Independent reported on the incident yesterday, and, despite a sensational headline and evocative photo suggesting Israel was responsible for the death, their reporter, Bethan McKernan, did at least cite the comments by Gaza health official undermining Hamas’s claims.
