Euronews Headline Turns Palestinian Vehicle into Victim

UPDATE

Euronews has amended its headline, which now reads: “Israeli troops shoot dead driver who rammed car into soldiers.”

Three soldiers were injured by a car driven by a Palestinian man in a car ramming attack on Tuesday evening near the West Bank settlement of Dolev, west of Ramallah.

This is how Euronews headlined its report:

 

euronews040516

 

The headline implies that the vehicle itself had been rammed rather than carrying out the ramming attack. Ergo not only has the car been rammed but its driver has been shot dead by Israeli troops, turning him into a victim rather than a perpetrator.
