Amnesty International blatantly lied on Tuesday when it accused Israel of violating international law for bombing the Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights building in Gaza.
Amnesty tweeted: “We strongly condemn attack on the Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights whose office in Gaza was struck by an Israeli missile earlier this morning. Strikes targeting civilian buildings is a violation of international law. We are sending our solidarity to @ICHR_Pal”.
Meanwhile, Fox News foreign correspondent Trey Yingst who is reporting from Gaza fired back on Twitter and said the building was hit by a rocket that misfired from Gaza, and that he witnessed the event.
“Israel did not strike this building. A rocket misfired from Gaza. I was across the street when it happened,” wrote Yingst on Twitter.
You think Amnesty removed their tweet?
Of course not.
