CAMERA prompts Daily Mail correction on false Gaza casualty claim

It is well-known that casualty figures coming from the “Gaza Health Ministry” – that is, Hamas – do not distinguish between civilians and combatants. Many news outlets repeat these figures without noting that Israel claims, at last count, 13,000 dead Hamas fighters. Even worse, however, is when news outlets falsely claim that all of the casualties are civilians, as the Daily Mail did on March 10th. (“Biden Administration consulted Israel expert on how to ‘force the Netanyahu coalition to collapse’,” by Nic White.)

The Mail erroneously reported, “[Biden’s] administration has grown increasingly unhappy with the mounting civilian death toll, now at more than 30,000, in Gaza from bombings and ground operations.”

After contact from CAMERA, the Mail correct the claim, and the article now reads, “His administration has grown increasingly unhappy with the mounting Palestinian death toll, now at more than 30,000, in Gaza from bombings and ground operations.”

    The correction by the mail is no better than the original, it ignores what number of those casualty figures were combatants, assuming of course the figures are anywhere near correct. I would like to know how they can give accurate daily body counts in the midst of a war, it is all BS and the press and media are stupid enough to think it is the truth, no wonder the world is in such a mess with the ANC copying the Nazis and arresting Jews in SA just for being Jews or supporting/fighting for the IDF #journalismisdead
