Palestinians Post Old Photos To Impugn Israel's Meticulous Self-Defense

In response to the onslaught of rockets being fired out of Gaza at Israeli civilians, Israel has been conducting surgical strikes aimed at taking out the Palestinian terrorists and avoiding civilian casualties.

In response, some Palestinian Arabs have posted fake photos, claiming to depict Israel as retaliating against Gazan civilians.

Israellycool writes about 2 such cases in Liars, Liars:

The first is a picture circulated by Diana Alzeer, who just a few minutes ago finally admitted:

Warning/Apology: Photo I tweeted earlier which has been circulated over FB turns out to be old photo of Raja Abu Sha'ban killed in Gaza 2006

As it turns out, Alzeer is still wrong: the girl was not killed in Gaza, but in fact the child died as the result of an accident:

Here is the Reuters explanation that the girl was not killed by Israel but died of from an accident:
A Palestinian man carries the body of three year-old Raja Abu Shaban, in Gaza August 9, 2006. The three-year-old girl who had been reported killed by an Israeli air strike in Gaza on Wednesday actually died of an accident, Palestinian medical workers said on Thursday. Workers at Gaza's Shifa hospital said on August 10, 2006 that the initial mistake over the cause of death appeared to have arisen because the girl's corpse was brought in at the same time as the bodies of the gunmen.

Here is the second photo, posted by Nablussi, who posted this on Facebook--and then removed it without explanation.

But Israellycool has the screenshot of Nablussi's original post with the old photo:
