Many news sites refer to Badwan as either a protestor or a demonstrator who was shot and killed by the #IDF. The photo on the left, from the DailyMail, states Badwan is a protestor. The photo on the right from CGTN states Badwan is a protestor as well.
I’ll go a step further. Badwan wasn’t there as a civilian to protest. He was a militant embedded in the clashing at the crossing. How do I know this? The #Iran|ian funded, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, have let us know in a statement released Friday, he was one of their members.
The point I’m making is the awful work news orgs have done covering this event. They aren’t putting the effort to get more info about the story. I believe militants are being embedded in protests to cause trouble and this is just one example. I hope you enjoyed my report.
