The cease-fire between Israel and Hamas was tested Friday when a group of Gazan youths approached the border in an area Israel considers an off-limits buffer zone. One young man was shot and killed, Palestinian officials said. Nineteen other people were reportedly injured.
The shootings marked the first episode of violence since the cease-fire went into effect.
It did? Israel was the first to break the cease-fire? Are you sure you want to stick to that story?
Whether the truce holds remains to be seen. Though most of the major Palestinian factions joined Hamas in Cairo to negotiate the deal, smaller, Al Qaeda-inspired extremist groups in Gaza have proved difficult to control.
Even after the cease-fire took effect, about half a dozen rockets were fired into Israel.
Oh well. Probably the reporter for the most recent story was simply unaware of the rocket attacks mentioned in the earlier story?
Um, no. Both stories were written by the same reporter: Edmund Sanders.
They are, quite simply, lying to their readers.
