Truth from NYT, Lies from GAZA

Not a source I quote from regularly, but in their attempt to be balanced...they've explained the situation here quite well:

More than 150 rockets [note - this article was published yesterday; the actual count is currently above 300 rockets in 90 hours] have fallen in Israeli territory since Friday, and Gaza officials said at least six Palestinians died Monday, bringing the toll to 24. Though most of those killed have been militants, at least two were civilians.
A Gaza medical official and Gaza human rights groups said that one of the victims, Nayif Shaaban Qarmout, 14, was killed in an airstrike and that five other youths were wounded as they walked to school, but the Israeli military denied having carried out any attacks at that hour. An Agence France-Presse reporter at the scene confirmed that there was no sign of an airstrike.

Later, a missile killed Muhammad al-Hassumi, 65, and his daughter Fayza, 30, as they put out a fire on their land. The Mezan Center for Human Rights in Gaza said the fire had been caused by a Palestinian rocket that fell short of its target.

There are lies, and damn lies, and apparently, even worse than those, are the Gaza lies.
