Claims made by Israeli government and supporters collapse further
A video broadcast on Channel 4 News – an exceedingly rare example of real journalism in the so-called ‘mainstream’ media concerning Israel’s actions in Gaza – details analysis by a range of experts causing the further collapse of the Israeli regime’s claim that it was not responsible for the deadly attack on Gaza’s Al Ahli hospital.
The video shows expert analysis of the missile strike area, audio of the missile arriving and a voice track that Israel claims shows Hamas operatives discussing the misfiring of a missile. All of the analysis points toward Israel as the source of the strike:
A thread by Forensic Architecture, one of the expert groups, lays out the evidence in even more detail:
In addition to the extensive evidence presented by these experts, the nail in the coffin of the Israeli claim is that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s social media specialist, Hananya Naftali, boasted of the Israeli air force hitting the hospital – a tweet that was deleted when the official government narrative blamed Hamas for the more than five hundred civilian deaths the strike had caused.
Despite this, Channel 4 stands out among so-called ‘mainstream’ media by mentioning this preponderance of evidence against Israel’s claim, instead of simply parroting the official line, while the UK and other governments, as well as the UK’s supposed ‘opposition’, have amplified the false claim and supported Israel’s attacks.
