Rouzan al-Najjar was a female Palestinian medic who died of a bullet wound during violent protests near the Gaza-Israel border.

As we have documented dozens of times, those protests are organized and manipulated by Hamas and other terror groups, who plant their military members in the crowds under cover of burning tires. Dozens of Hamas and other terror members have been killed in the attempts to breach the border with the intent to attack Israeli soldiers and civilians.

Media - Anti-Israel - Media - Nature - Protests

The mainstream media and anti-Israel biased international media almost never focus on the terror-related nature of the protests, and the involvement (and death) of military members of terror groups.

Not since Warren Commission on JFK’s assassination have I seen such research, stopped frames, diagrams.

Words - Investigation - Conclusion

Yet despite all those words, the investigation conclusion is almost buried in the...
