An Arab journalist working for Palestinian Authority (PA) television was caught lying on a live PA TV broadcast in what was portrayed as an altercation with an Israeli soldier, a recording of the video made public by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) shows.

The video shows the reporter, dressed in a blue flak jacket with ‘Press’ written on it, covering a protest organized by “The Committee to Resist Settlements and the Wall” against US President Donald Trump’s Deal of the Century peace plan.

Standing next to a busy road, the PA TV journalist is told by soldiers to cross to the other side of the road to avoid oncoming traffic, one of the soldiers stating: “They’ll run you over. It’s your life. Go over here,” and adding “You’ll get killed. We’re looking out for you.”

Crossing the road the reporter turns to the camera, telling viewers that “one of the occupation soldiers” was making him cross the road on a false claim that this is an Israeli road and Palestinians are not allowed on it.”

PMW noted that “this is a classic example of how the Palestinian Authority lies to its own people to demonize Israelis and create hatred of them among Palestinians.”
