The Islamic Jihad, one of the terror organizations responsible for the recent wave of attacks against Israel, admitted that the baby that was killed in Gaza during the latest escalation died as a result of a misfired rocket, TPS reported on Monday. 


“A leak from the heroes of the [Islamic Jihad’s] Sarayat al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigades) on the circumstances of the death of the baby Saba Abu ‘Arar indicates that a rocket of the resistance exploded inside the family’s home due to a technical failure, and prematurely exploded,” a news item by Hamas’ al-Risala News said.



The report was published in a Telegram account related to Hamas on Sunday afternoon and it was removed shortly after its publication.


“There is a claim that the technical failure was caused by low-grade explosives in the rocket,” it added. “There is no doubt that the baby’s death has nothing to do with the enemy’s [Israel’s] planes”.



The 14-month-old and a woman that was initially identified as her pregnant mother died last Saturday night. Contradictory sources say that the woman who was killed with Saba was a different relative.


The Hamas-led Ministry of Health in Gaza immediately blamed Israel for it, even though the Israeli Defense Forces categorically denied the claim.


According to TPS, Islamic Jihad representatives met with the victims’ family on Sunday morning to offer them compensation and to qualify the baby as a “martyr” in exchange for their silence on the circumstances of her death.

Oh no!  That doesn't comply with the mainstream media's biased against Israel agenda.  Blame Israel! Blame Israel!

“a rocket of the resistance exploded inside the family’s home due to a technical failure, and prematurely exploded,”
As we have seen repeatedly, Hamas routinely hides behind women, children, and old people.
Standard operating procedure.

Hard to know what's true and what isn't anymore, but that sounds about right.

It's not the first time rockets from Gaza fell short and killed their own citizens.

I'm impressed they're at least honest about it.

JMO, they are only honest when some propagandist gain is to be had.

Waiting for the other shoe.

"I'm impressed they're at least honest about it."

Which is somewhat unusual.  It's worse publicity for them if the truth is exposed. For example, when they tried to use a photo taken at a totally different war in a totally different country and years before of a man carrying his dead child and tried to pawn it off as being in Gaza.  They were exposed.  They also eventually admitted that most of the Gazans that were killed by the IDF during the border riots were Hamas militants.  Maybe they're actually trying to establish some credibility for a change.  I'm sure the mainstream media is really pissed that they can't blame Israel as usual.
