The UN school bombing in Gaza. More than 40 Palestinian refugees died as they sheltered from the attacks. What followed was one of the biggest controversies Israel has faced for years.
And this is when it all got explosive. Israel claimed Hamas fighters were firing rockets from within the school. The UN said is was 99.9% sure they weren’t. Israel went on YouTube to say even the Associated Press and New York Times had verified their claims. But the NYT said no, they only had witnesses saying Hamas fighters were in the neighbourhood.
The UNRWA legend Christopher Gunness went on CNN to discuss the issue with Yigal Palmor from the Israeli Foreign Ministry. What follows is the actual moment Gunness forced him to admit Israel had been bending the truth.
It is a beautiful moment. Enjoy. (audio only)
