Incitement via Lies

IMRA (Independent Media Review Analysis) has brought to light another example of WAFA (the official Palestinian news agency) inventing news.

They link to a Saudi Press Agency story reporting that a Palestinian was shot while trying to stab an Israeli soldier.

This is juxtaposed with the WAFA version of the same story: "the unidentified child was walking with his friends when the Israeli soldier unjustifiably targeted him with several bullets."

WAFA has claimed in the past that Israel killed a Palestinian with a "poisonous bullet" and that Israel uses an internationally banned "mass killing" tear gas.
