These included cases involving photographers who had taken pictures of Hamas operatives in compromising circumstances — gunmen preparing to shoot rockets from within civilian structures, and/or fighting in civilian clothing — and who were then approached by Hamas men, bullied and had their equipment taken away.

CAMERA discovered a Wall Street Journal reporter coming to the same conclusion as the Italian reporters, but then deleting the tweet:

This tweet showing Hamas using al-Shifa hospital for media interviews was deleted by a Wall Street Journal reporter:

Coincidentally after threats were made on Twitter against that reporter and other reporters ….. continue reading.
