Israeli Military Casts Doubt on Hamas Claim Tear Gas Killed Palestinian Baby

5

An IDF official cast doubt on Tuesday that the Israeli military was responsible for the death the previous day of a Palestinian baby in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

“We have evidence that undermines the credibility of the Hamas Health Ministry’s announcement regarding the death of the baby,” Maj. Avichay Adraee — the IDF’s Arabic-language spokesman — said.

 

Adraee was referring to eight-month-old girl Laila al-Ghandour, who — according to the Health Ministry — died after inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli forces at rioters on the Gaza border.

An anonymous medical doctor in Gaza separately told the Associated Press that al-Ghandour “had a pre-existing medical condition and that he did not believe her death was caused by tear gas.”

“Layla’s family claimed Tuesday that the baby had ended up in the area of the protest as a result of a mix-up,” the AP added.

Al-Ghandour was laid to rest on Tuesday in Gaza City at a funeral attended by hundreds of mourners.

At least 60 Palestinians were killed on the border on Monday.

  3. What was a baby doing at a so called peaceful protest, with peaceful rocks, peaceful, bombs, peaceful tire burning, etc.,etc. I even thought I saw some one in a wheel chair helping with the peaceful protest plus children and women. Most civilization try to protect the innocent and the men go to war, but here the innocent protect the men, what do you call men like that????? COWARDS?????

  4. Who brings a baby to a demonstration? Only a total murderous parent.
    The terrorists have no value on life so this is just one for the cause. They reproduce like rats so this is of no consequence.
