The Zionist regime has now admitted that the 13 Israelis killed in a guerilla ambush in the southern West Bank town of al-Khalil (Hebron) were actually combat soldiers and paramilitary settlers.

Initially, the Israeli foreign ministry claimed the ambush, carried out by Islamic Jihad resistance group, targeted “worshipers on their way home from prayers.”

On its website, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs declared that “at least 12 persons were killed Friday night in Hebron when Palestinian terrorists opened fire and threw grenades at a group of Jewish worshipers and their guards as they were walking home from Sabbath prayers at the Machpela Cave.”

Many media accounts around the world reported the inaccurate Israeli government version of the events with little question and no cautions.

UN General Secretary Kuffi Annan, US Secretary of State Collin Powell and even EU foreign policy chief Chavier Solana all issued statements strongly condemning the “the despicable” and “shocking attack on innocent civilians.”

Even news agencies such the Associated Press reported that “Palestinian militants opened fire on Jewish worshipers as they walked toward a shrine after sundown Friday in this divided city, killing 11 people and wounding 15 others.”

The deliberate misrepresentation of facts by Israeli officials was apparently aimed at wining the PR battle and gaining the world’s understanding for the subsequent wanton attacks on defenseless Palestinian civilians in Hebron.

The Israeli army did reoccupy completely the second largest city in the West Bank as Israeli forces demolished a number of homes and uprooted Palestinian orchards and vineyards in the area where the ambush took place.
