The Palestinians have long been experts at manufacturing videos that make the Israelis look bad. They use “journalists” to make their pitch, and the Western media eagerly buys it. Eventually, the truth emerges, but these follow up items never displace the negative response elicited by the original propaganda.
Footage of Palestinian protesters faking injuries and using children as human shields in border riots was released by the IDF Saturday night.
One clip shows a group of Gazans carrying a supposedly wounded demonstrator on a stretcher (see above), but towards the end of the clip, the demonstrator falls off the stretcher and gets up completely unharmed and walks.
“Throughout Hamas’s activity, fake injuries and the exploitation of women and children are rampant,” the IDF said in a tweet.
“This was all intended to disguise terror activity, including hurling explosives & grenades, attempted infiltrations, & burning Israeli land.”
In another clip, children as young as five and six are seen rolling tires and hurling rocks. They are also shown being taken by the hand by older rioters to be used as cover, or human shields.
