Gaza Fauxtography: Reuters Missile Strike Staged Photos?

As we reported on Saturday, Palestinian "witnesses" claim that an Israeli missile hit this Reuters truck.

Does this look like a truck that was hit by a "missile" to you? Is that rust on the roof?

The damage seems much more consistent with a cinder block falling on the truck, than with a missile. A missile would have obliterated the truck--armoured or not.

Here's another photo showing the extent of the damage caused by the alleged "missile".

If it was a missile, there's no way it hit the truck directly.

Power Line and Snapped Shot have more.
