Reporter Accidentally Tells The Truth Then Complains It Is Being Used For Pro-Israel 'Propaganda'
She is only happy when Hamas uses her reporting for propaganda:
A translation of the Finnish report obtained by the blog Legal Insurrection read, "Also, a rocket attack was conducted from the 'backyard' of the hospital at 2 o'clock in the morning. It (the rocket launch), in fact, happened somewhere close by because the noise right here at the hospital area was really loud. Indeed, these rockets launched here from the Gazan side (of the border) are headed into Israel."
Following the posting of her report on pro-Israel blogs, Zidan took to Facebook this weekend, writing, "Don't use me as your propaganda weapon."
Noting the main purpose of her report was to cover the "Palestinian civilians who were victims of war," Zidan wrote, "During the night someone launched a rocket somewhere behind the hospital. Now this sentence from my article is spreading in the pro-Israeli medias. I mentioned this in my article because I'm a professional journalist. I try to cover the events truthfully as I see them and I strongly condemn these kind of actions." [...]
Shifa Hospital where the rocket was launched is also where a Hamas rocket aimed at Israel fell short last week, slamming into the outpatient clinic, the Israel Defense Forces said, backing up its claim with aerial images showing the launch and impact points of the rocket. Hamas officials did not allow the media to take photographs of the impact area.
