Who Told the Truth: the IDF or Hamas?

Islamic Jihad terrorist was killed in Gaza

Photo Credit: Ma'an

Last week I noted that an Islamic Jihad terrorist was killed in Gaza in what every Arab newspaper called an Israeli strike, either from a drone or artillery. I cannot find a single report that gives any other possible reason for his death.

The IDF denied any activity in Gaza at the time.

Here we have a clear case of “he said, she said” – Israeli spokespeople versus Gaza’s health ministry spokesman and other Gaza witnesses.

From years of watching the region, I was quite certain that the IDF was telling the truth and the Arabs were lying. Yet there are plenty of people out there who assume that every Israeli statement is a lie and they believe every single Arab claim, despite years of evidence showing the exact opposite.

So who was telling the truth this time?

PCHR publishes a weekly report of supposed Israeli crimes. If they don’t mention something, it didn’t happen.

They don’t mention anything about anyone being killed on January 8.

This is hardly the first time that Gaza’s health ministry was found to lie. Maybe one day the world’s media will know not to believe a word they say.

Aw, who am I kidding?
