UPDATE: From Atlas Shrugs: The New York Times website is currently running an article about a Palestinian doctor whose daughters were killed in Gaza is entitled, “Gazan Doctor and peace advocate loses 3 daughters to Israeli fire and asks why”. The Muqata blog just posted the following.
9:40 PM Breaking News. The CAT head scan of the niece of Gazan doctor, Dr Ayash whose 3 daughters were killed in his building reveals conclusively that the shrapnel in her head is NOT from IDF muntions…rather like those from Hamas-used rockets. (Channel 1 TV minutes ago)
Army says it fired at Gaza doctor’s home, killing three daughters, after troops were targeted by sniper fire; meanwhile, IDF says that shell hit fuel tank near UNWRA compound Thursday, but facility itself was not targetedEarlier Saturday, Dr. Ezzeldeen Abu al-Aish convened a press conference at Sheba medical center near Tel Aviv, where he works, and demanded to know why the army targeted his homeNot so innocent? The daughters of a Gaza doctor were killed by the IDF after sniper fire from the family’s home targeted Israeli soldiers, the army said Saturday.Why they did kill them? Give me a reason,” the doctor, who lost three of his daughters in the incident, said. “That’s what I want. I want the reason. These Israeli soldiers, the IDF, they know my house.” Following an inquiry into the incident, the IDF announced that soldiers fired shells at the doctor’s home in response to sniper fire.
Why is he engaging in propaganda? He’s talking against Israel at the Sheba hospital. You should all be ashamed. All my children are serving in Gaza. Who knows what he had at his home?”“What’s wrong with you, have you all gone crazy?” she said. “My son is in the paratroopers, who knows what you had inside your home, nobody is talking about that. Nobody is talking. Who knows what kind of weapons were in your house; so what if he’s a doctor? The soldiers knew exactly. They had weapons inside the home, you should be ashamed. I have three soldiers, why are they firing at them? All of you should be ashamed.” […]Stern spoke with journalists after the doctor left the site and said: “I pity him. I’m completely feel for him. My heart aches over what happened to his children and I know what it’s like when children die and a family is ruined. Yet I don’t understand why the people of Israel give him a platform at the hospital while our soldiers are lying here wounded. He needs to tell the story, but tell it once, and that’s it.”
