MSM Still Using Casualty Figures Hamas Conceded Were Wrong

December 20, 2010 11:15 by

AFP picks up on the latest IDF air strike on a Gaza rocket squad. This background snippet is woefully off:

The strike was one of the most deadly since Israel's 22-day war against Gaza's Hamas rulers, dubbed Operation Cast Lead, which began at the end of December 2008 and cost the lives of 1,400 Palestinians, most of them civilians, and 13 Israelis, 10 of them soldiers.

Odd. Hamas already confirmed the civilian casualty figures had been inflated all along.
