This is the same ‘journo’ who got upset with the Tundra Tabloids for highlighting her flirtation with honesty when she reported that Hamas was firing rockets at Israel from the vicinity of the Shifa hospital in Gaza.
I had captured her news segment when she was working for the Helsingin Sanomat and translated it which went viral on social media. The Israeli MFA still has it on their website as proof of Hamas’ use of civilians as civilian shields. Here’s a portion from an earlier post I did on her:
Aishi Zidan is the journalist reporting from Gaza for the Finnish Dispatch (Helsingin Sanomat), who let it slip that Hamas were using the Shifa hospital in Gaza City as a launching pad site for its rockets into Israel. I broke that story to the international media (here, here, here and here. Now she’s complaining about pro-Israel websites using this excellent material in proving Israeli claims, that Hamas is indeed using the civilian population as human shields. And man is she bitter.
NOTE: Though Aishi Zidan was born in Helsinki, no doubt, she still considers herself as a Palestinian ”refugee”.
