Breaking the Silence caught falsifying list of supposed IDF ‘victims’ in Gaza

Breaking the Silence, an Israeli organization that claims to report on cases where the IDF has harmed innocent Palestinians, recently posted on Facebook a list of 75 of alleged victims.

However, Ad Kan (Up to Here), an Israeli non-profit organization that investigates false accusations made against Israel, has found that the vast majority of the people listed were not, in fact, civilians.

The list provided by Breaking the Silence was purported to be of people harmed by the IDF during Operation Guardians of the Wall. But it seems that they have taken a page out of the Hamas playbook and included many people who were clearly young terrorists on their list. Ad Kan’s research has shown that the vast majority of those 75 “innocent” Palestinians were actually killed while carrying out attacks on civilians and IDF soldiers, by shooting, trampling, stabbing and more.

This is the same old story. It was revealed long ago that the reports of hundreds of so-called innocent victims of Israel’s actions in Gaza came from Hamas controlled institutions there. While the people listed may have in fact been killed during the fighting, a simple review of their names showed that these were mostly young men who were killed and they were in locations that were known to have been Hamas positions in Gaza at the time of their deaths.

The deaths of the Palestinians listed by Breaking the Silence on Facebook were, says Ad Kan, of course, widely reported in the Israeli media, as part of the coverage of the attacks they carried out.

According to researchers from Ad Kan, the list of those killed was taken from the Palestinian “Wafa” website which is clearly no friend of Israel’s.

Ad Kan stated, “’Breaking the Silence’ is misleading the public for political purposes while presenting partial and biased information.”

“We are concerned about what appears to be growing aid on the part of Breaking the Silence to create the false Palestinian narrative and their detachment from reality. Already a few years ago, we unveiled a briefing by one of the leaders of the organization that explains that a stabbing attack on an IDF soldier is not terrorism.”
