New York Times Gaza Correspondent Designates Fighters as Civilians

After commentator Lenny Ben-David raised questions about the New York Times inflating the number of civilians killed in Gaza during the recent fighting, reporter Isabel Kershner told him that the

reporting of the numbers has been based on the information provided by our correspondent in Gaza. ... [H]e identified three of four killed [in Rafah] on the first day as civilians collecting gravel near the old airport, if I remember rightly.

Ben-David shows that this is not the case. Details here.

Isabel Kirschner has been inventing stories as well as numbers to suit her anti Israel NYTimes bias for years.
