Israeli analyst convicted of defamation in death of 12-year old Palestinian
(PRESS TV) After nearly a decade in court, a Franco-Israeli media analyst has been convicted of defamation against state TV channel France 2 in what’s known as the Al-Dura case. The court rejected his allegation that journalists had orchestrated this footage of a terrified 12-year old Palestinian boy trapped by Israeli gunfire. The analyst even alleged that Mohammed al-Dura did not die in the attack. The shocking murder occurred in the Gaza Strip in September 2000, at the start of Palestinians’ Second Intifada, or uprising.
