The Hamas terrorist organization has begun to issue false reports to journalists as its desperation rises to win its conflict with Israel.
As it does in each mini-war, Hamas is already grinding out rumors and disinformation to gullible journalists who believe the reports of destroyed targets and dead Jews.
The latest false report – issued in the form of an “IDF Alert” – claimed a missile attack destroyed an oil refinery in Haifa. A second report issued shortly after claimed that 25 Jews were killed.
There are specific criteria for authentic IDF reports to journalists, which professional reporters recognize. The public is urged not to believe unsubstantiated reports of Jewish deaths and destroyed Israeli infrastructure: there’s a lot of Arab disinformation out there. It’s all part of the propaganda war.
