This iconic image made its way around the world. Fighting back tears at Gaza’s Shifa Hospital, Egyptian Prime Minister held 4-year old Mahmoud Sadallah in his arms and called on Israel to end its military operations.
A PR gift for Hamas, eager to portray the IDF as vicious child killers.
While the boy was allegedly killed by an IDF airstrike, it occurred during the time that a ceasefire was in effect for the visit of the Egyptian PM. A ceasefire that Hamas broke, firing more rockets while even Israel refrained from launching airstrikes.
The truth has now emerged. Credit to some journalists for admitting, for once, that Israel was not the responsible party.
