    but anyone with even only a little knowledge of the area knows that this was rebel related.

    The Aljazeera report is bad but not as bad as they usually are. It doesn't even say that this happened at a Turkish border crossing and also convieniently leaves out that the Syrian border crossing and the area around it are controlled by Syrian rebel forces.

    and these sentences are misleading:  

    A police officer has died and at least 10 other people have been injured after gunfire broke out on Syria's border with Turkey, officials say.

    'gunfire broke out' - Who may I ask broke it out?
    Abdulhakim Ayhan, mayor of the border town of Akcakale, said shots were fired when Turkish authorities issued warnings to a large group of Syrians trying to cross illegally.
    'shots were fired' - and where were they shot from and by whom?

    Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.
