On January 27th media headlines trumpeted that Palestinians had broken the latest cease-fire: a bomb had killed one Israeli soldier and injured two or three.
Virtually every media outlet reported this action as a major breach in the ceasefire that had begun on January 18th: CNN, AP, NPR, the New York Times, The Washington Post, Fox News, ABC, CBS, the Christian Science Monitor, the LA Times, the McClatchy Newspapers, etc, all pinned the resumption of violence on Palestinians.
There’s just one problem. Israeli forces had already violated the ceasefire at least seven times:
Israeli forces killed a Palestinian farmer in Khuza'a east of Khan Yunis on Jan 18
Israeli forces killed a Palestinian farmer east of Jabalia on Jan. 19
