1/ Remember NYT front-page photo gallery of 67 #Gazan kids killed by Israel? Some weren't kids, some pics were of live kids, and maybe 2 were killed by #Hamas rockets. Ceasefire was on 5.21. Published on 5.26.
Strange. So fast? How'd they get pics? NYT Staffers who wrote ...
The NYT staffers who wrote the story based in Cairo, Jerusalem, & photo ed in London. Article mentioned 2 freelance photogs in Gaza.

Who did the massive legwork? Needed big team. NYT admits Palest officials (Hamas?), NGOs.
Who were they?

Who coordinated, collected, scanned?
3/ At least 8 of the Gaza kids were killed by #Hamas rockets falling on them.
680 Hamas rockets fell ON GAZA. so the toll can be higher.
Did the Hamas-run Health Ministry provide pics?

BTW. Note the background used by Hamas boss Yahya Sinwar.

#BREAKING Proof of @nytimes fraud in its #Gaza Hit Job against #Israel.

The NYT shows only 10 seconds of #Hamas narrow tunnels.
The video WAS TAKEN IN 2014!

Pic 1. 2021 vid. Min. 7:00. Man red Kaffiya.
Pic 2. Same man in 2014.
He's wearing PIJ emblem

2/ NYT: There were no videos of the Hamas tunnels in May 2021?
Were NYT local fixers & photographers working for or scared of Hamas?
Was the 2014 clip added in the NY office?
Here's a trustworthy video from Qatari source.
3/ After the @nytimes journalistic jihad vs Israel with the front page gallery of kids supposedly killed by Israel, & now using 7 y.o. footage to misrepresent the threat of #Hamas tunnels, the #Israel government probably has only one choice.
Persona non grata status for #NYTimes

.@evanhill, @herbertnyt @PatrickKingsley your hatchet job on #Israel gets worse w every layer of research.
Thread 1/

NYT minimized #IDF intel on the tunnels, showing only 10 secs of a skinny non-threatening #Hamas tunnel.

What you DIDN'T show would have killed your narrative.
On June 5, 2021 - BEFORE @evanhill tweeted his search for tech bomb expert to help him on NYT project - Iran's Mehr & Qatar's Al Jazeera broadcast a vid of #Hamas' tunnels w Command, Control, Plan & Operation chambers!
Can't deny a legit target.
3/ NYT apparently had NO U.S. staff in #Gaza & relied on Gaza photographers & "fixers" who are owned or threatened by #Hamas.
Of course they took no pics/videos of Wahda St tunnel.
BUT, Al Jazeera had no problem, as these screenshots show - large chambers, stockpiles of weapons.

Thread. 1/ More questions for @nytimes @herbertnyt @evanhill
Hill amassed a massive team for his hit job on #Israel. What did the NYT spend?
$2 million for the intensive month-long operation?
No one could get into #Gaza. How'd you pull that off? Who interviewed, film, research?
2/ More Qs for @nytimes @herbertnyt @evanhill

At end of his list of staff, Hill thanks UNRWA & a Palestinian human rights group.
Were they his foot soldiers on the ground (ON, not UNDER to investigate #Hamas tunnels.)
Another essential group was necessary, but not credited.
3/ More Qs for @nytimes @herbertnyt

The Times case rests on bomb fragments showing size & US origins.
Who collected & presented the "evidence?"

THE GAZA POLICE, an integral part of #Hamas' forces. Some cops are officers in Qassam Brigade (& wrapped in Hamas flags at funerals).

.@nytimes produced its war film vs #Israel that it's been working on for wks. The storyline: Israel used US weapons to bomb Gaza apt buildings & kill civilians.
I saw this coming. See thread.
Gaza’s Deadly Night: How Israeli Airstrikes Killed 44 People. nytimes.com/video/world/mi…
2/ The NYT ignored proof of tunnels & command center that CREATED A SINKHOLE.
3 wks ago NYT advertised for a tekkie who could help produce this video.
NYT ignored Hamas' reax to question about a command post, but bored in on IDF response.
Film's producer has HRW & AJ "history."
3/ .@herbertnyt How come WSJ asks #Hamas but you can't? "When asked if a tunnel was under Wahda St or if Hamas has tunnels under residential 'hoods, Basem Naim, Hamas office of intern'l rel:“How to defend ourselves, w tunnels or w/out, where to have the tunnels, is our choice.”

Is #HassanNasrallah, the leader of #Hizbullah, dead?

Rumors abound.
Coincidence? A flash heat wave was felt in #Israel yesterday, as if the fires of hell were stoked with a new source of fuel. 🔥
1/ Thread: The #Nasrallah Obituary Album Image
2/ Nasrallah Obit Album.
Israel will regret that #Nasrallah died NOT at its hand.

And then there were none: The three men who led the 2006 #Lebanon war against #Israel - Qasem #Soleimani, Iyad Mughniyeh, and #HassanNasrallah debriefing Khomeini Jr in #Iran. Image
3/ Nasrallah Obit Album.

There's no doubt that #Nasrallah was Soleimani's main man in #Lebanon.
"Welcome to Hell, Hassan." Image

"They Were Only Children." I have never seen worse anti-Israel propaganda disinformation than this @nytimes piece in my 40+ yrs of defending #Israel in media trenches.
Every child's death is a disaster, but the Times presents a blood libel vs Israel.
2/ "At least 66 children under age 18 were killed in #Gaza," the NYT writes with pics of angelic kids. Per bios, most were killed by "Israeli airstrikes."
"At least 2 kids in Gaza "MAY HAVE BEEN KILLED killed when Palestinian militants fired a rocket at Israel that fell short"
3/ Let's deal with #Hamas rockets 1st.
15% of 4,000 rockets fell shot & landed in #Gaza, that's = to 600 deadly bombs. Gaza isn't the densest spot on earth, but so many Hamas bombs falling can't miss Palestinians.
This is what a suicide rocket looks like
