“They encircle me with words of hate; they attack me without cause.” Psalms 109:3 (The Israel Bible™)
The routinely anti-Israel bias reporting was punctuated by reports that a 14-month old baby and her pregnant aunt were killed by IDF strikes but there are reports that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad has admitted the deaths were a result of one of their rockets malfunctioning and landing inside Gaza.
Approximately 700 rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza by Palestinian Islamic Jihad backed by Iran and Hamas on Saturday and Sunday. Four Israelis were killed by rockets and at least ten others were treated for shrapnel wounds. Dozens more were treated for shell-shock. Israel responded by hitting approximately 320 military targets in Gaza. 29 Gazans were killed in IDF strikes, many of them declared as terrorists by Gazan sources.
On Saturday evening, the Hamas-run Gaza health ministry reported that a 14-month-old Palestinian child, Saba Mahmoud Hamdan Abu Arar, had been killed along with her aunt, Falastin Saleh Abu Arar, when an Israeli airstrike hit their house in Gaza City. The IDF launched an investigation and announced their conclusions that a rocket launched from inside Gaza had caused the deaths.
Yesterday, Palestinian weapons caused the tragic death of a mother in Gaza and her baby. Hamas blamed Israel. Journalists amplified the lie. Our assessment indicates that the incident had nothing to do with IDF strikes.

Despite the IDF explanation, international media placed blame for the deaths on Israel.
