GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Aug 26, 2006 (AP)— Two missiles fired by Israeli aircraft early Sunday morning hit an armored car belonging to the Reuters news agency, moderately wounding two television cameramen and three bystanders, Palestinian witnesses and hospital officials said.

The Israeli army said it was checking the report.

According to witnesses, a Reuters cameraman and a freelance cameraman working for an Arabic network were standing outside the vehicle in the Shajaiyeh neighborhood of Gaza filming a nearby Israeli raid when the missiles hit the car.

The white sports utility vehicle was emblazoned with the Reuters logo and had "TV" written on it in English, Arabic and Hebrew, witnesses said.

... pointing their camera at the action ... or was it a laser designator or shoulder-fired rocket? No time during battle conditions to figure out which. Price of doing business, guys.

Two missiles and those standing around the car were still mostly intact? I'll have to wait for the pictures to judge. ;)

Wrong title.

The article should be titled "Wintess: Israel Strikes Abu Reuters Car".


There. That's better.

They dont always need photoshop. They just .... lie.


In Tyre, Lebanese Red Cross (ie. terrorist) "ambulance worker" peers from the roof top of an ambulance
that was rusted, that had no windows broken and no burn or bomb marks.
The terrorists claimed that the hole happened when the ambulance was 'bombed' by the Israeli Air Force.
Any idiot can see corrosion all over the ambulance with no incendiary markings.
So who would anyone believe it? The MSM lapped it up.

"TV" written on it in English, Arabic and Hebrew, witnesses said.

Well, see, there's the problem. Nobody could read the signs because there were so many languages there that the print was too small and from that elevation it appeared to say "Bomb Here"

This is being discussed at length at LGF.

This story is total unmitigated crap. 

There is no way that car was hit by two Israeli missles.

Pallywood at its best. This may turn out to be as big a "fake news" scoop as the ambulance story

I wish I had the photoshop skills to put Fatima the Bomb Magnet Lady coming out of that hole in the "ambulance".

Please, somebody!

I also saw the discussion on LGF and they said everyone would be dead if one missile hit. One fellow said it probably was a near miss with shrapnel

Well, they have to eliminate the enemy don't they?  And Reuter's would be one of Israel's biggest enemies.

Perhaps. I wouldn't rule out that photographer Hajj and Green Helmet Guy have been redeployed to Gaza by al Reuters.

I suppose it would be irrelevant if their employee-passengers were members of Fatah or Hamas, and/or carried RPGs and AK-47s.

Israel should immediately release that same photo showing Hisb'allah painted clearly on the top. Reuters might get the idea.

What is a Reuters photographer doing working for an Arab press anyway?
