Israeli criticism of journalists on Gaza border conflicts with video

Israel’s military has suggested that a photo it has distributed shows journalists are willingly being used as human shields by Palestinian militants during recent protests, but video and a witness account of the incident tell a different story.
 
The military has made a photo from April 13 protests and clashes on the Gaza Strip border part of its public relations effort, with one army spokesman using it in a tweet to suggest bias and recklessness by journalists covering recent demonstrations.Those suggestions conflict with video footage of the incident shown in the photograph filmed by an AFP journalist and the reporter’s description of what happened.
 
The distribution of the photo comes as Israel comes under scrutiny over its use of live fire during protests and clashes on the Gaza border. Thirty-four Palestinians have been killed and hundreds wounded by Israeli forces since the protests began on March 30, according to Gaza’s health ministry.
