Hamas Kills Children, Blames Israel

This story's been getting widespread coverage, at Elders of Ziyon, "Dead child cradled by Egypt's PM was killed by Hamas! (UPDATED)." (And check the blog for phenomenal comprehensive coverage.)

And Telegraph UK picked up the story:
...there were signs on Saturday that not all the Palestinian casualties have been the result of Israeli air strikes. The highly publicised death of four-year-old Mohammed Sadallah appeared to have been the result of a misfiring home-made rocket, not a bomb dropped by Israel.

The child’s death on Friday figured prominently in media coverage after Hisham Kandil, the Egyptian prime minister, was filmed lifting his dead body out of an ambulance. "The boy, the martyr, whose blood is still on my hands and clothes, is something that we cannot keep silent about," he said, before promising to defend the Palestinian people.

But experts from the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights who visited the site on Saturday said they believed that the explosion was caused by a Palestinian rocket.
