In the bloodiest outbreak of violence in a while, six Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces yesterday, three in Gaza and three in the West Bank. In Gaza, those killed were apparently civilians collecting scrap metal near the Israeli border while the three killed in the West Bank were accused of killing a Jewish settler on Thursday. The story received plenty of coverage with varying headlines:
West Bank: 2 Fatah Members Killed – New York Times
Israeli Troops Kill Palestinians – Al Jazeera
IDF Kills Terrorists Who Murdered Meir Chai; 3 Killed in Gaza – Jerusalem Post
Israel Kills Six Palestinians – New York Times
Israel Kills Six Palestinians in West Bank, Gaza – Asharq Alawsat
Got to love semantics.
