THE AL-DURA CASE

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

TWELVE-YEAR-OLD Mo­ham­mad al-Dura be­came an iconic im­age of the sec­ond In­tifada, his last mo­ments cap­tured by a French TV cam­era team. Killed on Septem­ber 30, 2000, Is­rael ac­cepted re­spon­si­bil­ity for his death. But later on, an IDF re­con­struc­tion claimed to prove that he had been shot by Pales­tini­ans. Cam­paign­ers ac­cused France 2 of dis­tort­ing the footage. One Is­raeli re­searcher even claims that he never died, and still lives in the refugee camp, work­ing as an ice-cream seller.
