NGO-Monitor, a watchdog group critical of anti-Israel bias among nonprofits involved in the Middle East conflict, issued a harsh statement slamming human rights groups and the media for having “fabricated” their versions of the event.

“These NGO allegations were particularly damaging due to powerful, widely circulated images of the grieving father of the child, who is a journalist. The NGO and corresponding media accounts worked together to demonize Israel for the death of an innocent child,” the organization said in a statement.

“Rather than applying consistent and professional standards to fact-finding, the claims of HRW and PCHR are often the products of instant speculation and the a-priori presumption of Israeli guilt. Later, when detailed evidence emerges that contradicts their allegations, these NGOs fail to publish apologies and retractions.”
