Guardian Headline Omits Fact That Palestinians Were Killed AFTER Attacking Israelis
The Guardian has once again published a report on terror attacks with a headline that not only focuses on the fate of those who initiated the violence, but fails to even inform readers that the Palestinians were killed only after attempting to attack Israeli security forces. The Guardian’s version of an Associated Press (AP) report, on multiple terror incidents in the West Bank, led with this headline:
“Three Palestinian teenagers shot dead in West Bank”
It’s only in the strap line, and then in the opening passage, that we’re told Israeli security forces were under attack before the Palestinians were shot.
Tellingly, the original AP article (which included information on additional terror incidents ) did in fact note in the headline that the Palestinians killed were “attackers.”
“Israel: 5 Palestinians killed while attacking Israelis “
Remarkably, even Al Jazeera’s headline accompanying its own report on attacks in the West Bank that day managed to note that the Palestinians died while carrying out “alleged” attacks.
