Abir Aramin: Another Pallywood al Dura hoax?

Those Zionazis are at it again. Murdering women and children and puppies and kittes. All on purpose, I'm sure.

New York Times:

A 10-year-old Palestinian girl, Abir Aramin, died Friday from wounds sustained when she was hit by fire from the Israeli border police on Tuesday in the West Bank town of Anata, near Jerusalem, Palestinian witnesses and relatives said. Abir and her classmates were on recess from school when the Israeli forces fired on stone-throwing Palestinians with rubber bullets and stun grenades, according to the Palestinians.
See, the kids were just out on recess. Playing jumprope. Hopscotch. Normal stuff. Then along comes the Zionist oppressors who decide to shoot the kids for no good reason. That's the story, Palestinian witnesses are unimpeachable sources of reliability.

Of course, then there's this. Ha'aretz:

Ten-year-old Abir Aramin was apparently killed by a blunt object, and not by a rubber bullet, as some eyewitnesses claimed, according to the autopsy findings. . .

Police sources said on Sunday that autopsy findings indicated Aramin could have been killed by concussion from a shock grenade or by a thrown rock. However, they said, the findings were inconsistent with her having been killed by a rubber bullet: No bullet wounds were found on her body, and the skull injury that caused her death was a large one, whereas rubber bullets, even if they do not penetrate, usually make small wounds.

The autopsy was performed last Friday at the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Abu Kabir, with a pathologist hired by Aramin's family in attendance.

Expect many a Palestinian to use Abir's unfortunate death for their own propagandistic purposes. And that propaganda will be used to inspire more violence and homicide bombings. Propaganda kills.

UPDATE: Brian from Snapped Shot is also following this closely and worth the read.
