The Media Blamed Israel, Then Islamic Jihad Admitted Pregnant Woman Died When Its Rocket Blew Up
It's sad when Islamic terrorists are more factually accurate than the media reporting on them and whitewashing their crimes.

It was a lie. One of many media lies. While Islamic terrorists pounded Israel with rockets, the mainstream media unleashed a barrage of fake news.
The Islamic Jihad, one of the terror organizations responsible for the recent wave of attacks against Israel, admitted that the baby that was killed in Gaza during the latest escalation died as a result of a misfired rocket, TPS reported on Monday.
“A leak from the heroes of the [Islamic Jihad’s] Sarayat al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigades) on the circumstances of the death of the baby Saba Abu ‘Arar indicates that a rocket of the resistance exploded inside the family’s home due to a technical failure, and prematurely exploded,” a news item by Hamas’ al-Risala News said.
“There is a claim that the technical failure was caused by low-grade explosives in the rocket,” it added. “There is no doubt that the baby’s death has nothing to do with the enemy’s [Israel’s] planes”.
According to TPS, Islamic Jihad representatives met with the victims’ family on Sunday morning to offer them compensation and to qualify the baby as a “martyr” in exchange for their silence on the circumstances of her death.
Will there be any retractions, corrections or fact checks by the media? Don't count on it.
