The BBC reported that an Israeli policewoman was stabbed to death in Jerusalem.
“Two of the Palestinians attacked police officers with guns and knives while the third stabbed the policewoman, police say.
The three were identified by police as two men aged 18 or 19 and another man, all from the West Bank.”
BBC News World Tweets:
“Israeli police shoot them after a policewoman is stabbed and other people injured.”
So, what happened? Who stabbed whom? And why?
Distorted reporting from the most trusted news organ in the world.

What a disgustingly misleading tweet. Why not quote the ACTUAL headline? "Israeli policewoman stabbed to death in Jerusalem."— Teresa 📚 (@Teresa_ETC) June 16, 2017

H/T David P - more on this topic on ‘Twitchy’. (I assume my first ‘embed’ disappeared when BBC World deleted the Tweet)
It’s remarkable that Israel’s ‘partner for peace’ called the killing of the three brave martyrs a war crime.
Forgive me for thinking that some of the Palestinian spokespersons and officials have the maturity of a four-year-old.
