Hamas Instructs Gazans to Lie About Civilian Casualties, Rocket-fire from City Center

The Hamas government in Gaza is instructing Palestinians to lie about civilian casualties and to refrain from sharing images of Palestinians firing rockets from city centers. MEMRI has translated missives from Hamas Interior Ministry's official web site and social media sites that include the following guidelines:

Anyone killed or martyred is to be called a civilian from Gaza or Palestine, before we talk about his status in jihad or his military rank. Don't forget to always add 'innocent civilian' or 'innocent citizen' in your description of those killed in Israeli attacks on Gaza.

Avoid publishing pictures of rockets fired into Israel from [Gaza] city centers.
