UN Exonerates Israel in Gaza Child Death, Media Ignores | HonestReporting

In an interview with BBC Arabic, Jihad Misharawi stated that his 11-month old son, his sister-in-law and his brother were killed by shrapnel that hit his family home in the Al-Zeitoun neighborhood.

Now an advanced version of a UN Human Rights Council report on the conflict states:

On 14 November, a woman, her 11-month-old infant, and an 18-year-old adult in Al-Zaitoun were killed by what appeared to be a Palestinian rocket that fell short of Israel.

This information was released on March 6. As yet, no mainstream media outlet has covered the UN report let alone revisited the story of Omar Misharawi.

The media, so quick to judge Israel as the brutal killer of Palestinian children, have not bothered to correct an error when it turns out that Hamas is responsible for the killing.
