Ambassador Rips Media For Coverage Of Israel-Gaza Conflict
MIAMI (CBS Miami) — The Israeli ambassador to the United States is claiming that the “media is not connecting the dots” to Hamas following a story of 15 Palestinians killed when a United Nations school they sought shelter in was shelled.
Appearing on CNN Thursday evening, Ron Dermer chastised the network for not including in their coverage about how Hamas was using schools to hide rockets.
“It would be a disservice to your viewers for a reporter from Gaza not to mention that in the last week we had two different UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) schools where we had actually rockets found in the schools and handed over to Hamas,” Dermer said.
He then added: “Do you not think that it’s relevant to report on CNN that the secretary-general of the United Nations yesterday warned against the use of U.N. schools and shelter for rocket missile deposits of Hamas?”
