BBC Reporter posts photo of what he calls “Pain in Gaza” of a young girl on a stretcher. Problem is, the photo a Syrian girl injured in that conflict, not Gaza. ..which is a photo from June taken in Lebanon.
The link takes you to this photo:
Donnison has since apologized, but accuracy is still not on his agenda.
A photo I retweeted from another journo yesterday showing children injured was NOT in Gaza as I said but apparently from Syria. Apologies.
Besides Tan Jacket Man and Reflective Jacket Man, there are more incidences of Hamas and its supporters using fake photos to gain the upper hand in the information war.
Here are the latest examples.
Exhibit 1: Photo of a Syrian child killed, reposted by Hamas on Twitter (since removed)
Exhibit 2: Photo of another Syrian child posted by Gazan Facebook user here.
