UK Media Backgrounder on ‘Gaza-Israel Conflict’ Is Riddled with Distortions

The Independent’s new Mideast correspondent Bel Trew penned a backgrounder on the “Gaza-Israel conflict” that’s full of distortions.

Below are some highlights from the July 27 article.

Trew asks: “Why has there been an upsurge in violence?” to which she replies:

At the heart of the latest escalation is 16 weeks of Palestinian protests that have taken place at the border fence between Gaza and Israel.

However, what’s been occurring at the border each week since March 3 can’t accurately be characterized as merely “protests.” Rather, the Great Return March has included violent riots and attacks by terrorists armed with guns, pipe bombs, machetes, and incendiary devices. Their goal was to sneak into Israel and murder civilians.

On April 6, Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar appeared at one of the tents near the border and proclaimed that rioters would tear down the border fence and rip out the hearts of Israelis.
