    •  It's from five weeks ago, I'm sorry (13+ / 0-)

      It's verbatim from five weeks ago. From Oct. 27th. There was one word dropped from what you posted. The word "occupied."

      I can screen cap this to share with people if a link won't suffice:

      From your diary with your claim that this is from today, from your friend:

      Israeli occupation drones and F16 warplanes hovering over the Gaza Strip at low altitudes.
      vs.

      From various Palestinian sites on FB, all dated October 27, 2012:

      Israeli drones and F16 warplanes hovering over the Gaza Strip at low altitudes.
      The second piece of information which you blockquote and state is also from your friend is from GazaTVNews which issued a redaction of this, claiming it was an industrial accident.

      Fact.

      •  To be clear with the GazaTVNews link (10+ / 0-)

        It states:

        Gaza TV News shared a link.
        about an hour ago
        UPDATE: Reported explosion in #Gaza could have been an industrial accident, not Israeli strike
        The link is to the story from Russia Today in this same article.

        Earlier they had posted the blockquoted piece from this diary:

        Gaza TV News shared a link.
        2 hours ago
        Israel strikes Gaza violating ceasefire - reports — RT
        bit.ly
        At least four Palestinians have been injured after Israel reportedly shelled a residential area in Gaza Strip, thus
        While that may seem like a total non-sequitur, how I found this is by Googling this bit from the diary:
        To let everything clear. In a few minutes ago there were two violations of the truce by the Israeli army . The First violation was Firing one missile from the Israeli Artillery toward the Eastern border middle of Gaza strip 4 Injured moderately and the 2nd was Targeting a group of Civilians at the same area also 2 got Injured seriously.
        This gets a first hit here:

        And the story there contains that wording, which links (as its source) to GazaTVNews (which has redacted the claim):

        Update #Gaza
        Updates | To let... | Facebook
        Updates | To let everything clear. In a few minutes ago there were two violations of the truce by the Israeli army . The First violation was Firing one missile from the Israeli Artillery toward the Eastern border middle of Gaza strip 4 Injured moderately and the 2nd was Targeting a group of Civilians at the same area also 2 got Injured seriously.

        When you click that link (above), it takes you straight to the GazaTVNews site, where you can see that they've offered a disclaimer to their story where they say it's probably an industrial accident.

        I can't hyperlink to it, unfortunately, so here's the story again:

        Gaza TV News shared a link.
        about an hour ago
        UPDATE: Reported explosion in #Gaza could have been an industrial accident, not Israeli strike
        Just clarifying.
