Another example of photo-fraud this time using photos shot on the same day but spreading it over a two week period to suggest that damage was new.

More media manipulation: 1 not 40 dead in IDF strike.... From now on the press should include the disclaimer:

Statistics of civilian deaths may include a margin of error of 97.5%.

Just think about how many more similar cases might be out there that we don't even know about. Scary...
