A U.N. report indicates that a stray Palestinian rocket, not an Israeli airstrike, likely killed the baby of a BBC reporter during fighting in the Hamas-ruled territory last November, reports the Associated Press.
Omar al-Masharawi, the 11-month-old son of BBC employee Jihad al-Masharawi, was tragically killed in the midst of fighting between Israel and Palestinian terrorists last year. The horrific event was quickly turned into a symbol of what Palestinians and much of the Western world's media sees as Israeli aggression.
But the U.N. office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said in its March 6th report that the incident was caused by "what appeared to be a Palestinian rocket that fell short of Israel."
Similar stories of alleged Israeli aggression against civilians, such as this reporting from the BBC's Jon Donnison, emerged throughout the 'Pillar of Defense' campaign, in what was a major media war for Israel. Donnison was eventually summoned to a Government Press Office Hearing.
