Failure of AFP, Al Jazeera and Daily Mail

Big news organizations fell for an obvious fabrication.

There is flooding in Gaza. The Gaza Ministry of Interior claimed that Israel had opened dams and intentionally caused the flooding. BUT there are no dams in that part of Israel. AND Agence France Presse, Al Jazeera and Daily Mail ran with it. 

You thought the big news media had editors and high standards and so didn’t fall for fabricated stories. !!

The flooding is caused by rains and run off in an area whose government spends its money on rockets instead of infrastructure, like drainage and fuel for the pumps.
