Eight years ago, the world stopped by the horror vision of a man and his son being caught in the middle of fire between Israeli and Palestinians. The man was wounded and his son was allegedly killed by the Israeli forces.
After some research, a documentary came out showing that this event was totally staged by the Palestinian fighters and their journalist counter-parts to sell a twisted vision of the conflict.
Nowadays, the use of leftist media outlets (CNN, Reuters, etc) as proxies of the terror networks are common ground, but it seems that something emerged from the surface from time to time, afterall. H/T Little Green Footballs
Boy's death on video is a fake, blog says

WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 (UPI) -- A video of a 12-year-old boy allegedly killed in Gaza by an Israeli drone-fired missile, aired on CNN, is a fake, U.S. bloggers claim.
Dramatic video shot by the boy's older brother shows doctors trying to save the boy, his grieving family and the first part of a burial, IsraelNN.com reported. The family said the boy and a 14-year-old cousin were playing on their roof when they were by a missile fired by an Israeli drone supplied by the United States.
But IsraelNN.com said Charles Johnson 's U.S. blog Little Green Footballs uncovered several alleged discrepancies:
The family did not say how it knew a drone was involved, and no family member claimed to have witnessed the attack; doctors were massaging the child's stomach lightly, instead of vigorously massaging his chest; the boy was supposedly wounded everywhere by shrapnel, but there were no visible wounds on his head; and the rooftop on which he was purportedly killed showed only a small amount of damage.
CNN is standing by the report, IsraelNN said. The Israeli military said it had no knowledge of the incident.
