Israel’s occupation forces have killed 3 Palestinian citizens of Israel in a gunfight in al-Aqsa mosque and BBC is already cranking out fake news on behalf of Israel.
What we know at this point is that there was at first a gunfight at Lions’ Gate, where 2 Israel’s occupation forces’ members were wounded by the three men, who are said to have been riding motorcycles. The shooting is said to have happened from ‘a close range’.
This was followed by a very close range shooting at the al-Aqsa mosque compound yard, where the 3 men were killed. At this point there is no sign of motorcycles on the video.
Israel’s occupation forces didn’t allow medics to reach the 3 Palestinians left to bleed after they were shot.
They have been identified as Palestinian citizens of Israel, all living in Umm al-Fahm and having the same first and last names: Muhammed Jabarin. One or two are said to have had the patronym Ahmed, one Hamed. Age of two are given as 19, one is said to have been 30.
A third ‘Israeli’ is supposedly have been injured according to the BBC, who in it’s article doesn’t mention at all that two of the wounded ‘Israelis’ are armed members of occupation forces; whether the third one is also, we don’t know as other sources we have don’t mention this.
One Israeli hospital source says one man is being treated for ‘light injury’ and two are being treated for ‘panic attacks’.
In this BBC follows the ‘All Israelis Are Civilians’ script, which is followed by the usual lies about the recent death toll of Palestinians – BBC writes that it’s ‘over 240’, which it technically is, as it is in different sources little under or above 330, and the standard ‘Western’ portrayal of how deaths have happened as ‘Palestinians Attack, Israel Defends’.
The headline for the article is – naturally – ‘Israelis injured in gun attack near Jerusalem holy site’ because Palestinian lives don’t matter to the BBC – but doing Israel’s propaganda does matter to it, very much.
Israeli citizenship is also negated by Palestinian ethnic and cultural identity in both the ‘Western’ and Israeli media. Only those considered by Israel as Jews are ‘real’ Israelis to both.
That medical aid was apparently denied to the shot Palestinians doesn’t, ‘of course’, make BBC’s article. Facts, after all, stand on the way of ‘good’ propaganda.
Facts like those above – and the fact that East Jerusalem is occupied, which BBC doesn’t mention. ‘Daringly’ it does mention that the West Bank is occupied.
