Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Israel’s disinformation playbook: Delay, deflect, deny | The Listening Post” – below is their description.

Israel’s denial and disinformation surrounding the killing of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh came as no surprise to Palestinians familiar with the Israeli playbook – the one it uses to deflect, delay and avoid accountability. It has the effect of muddying the waters, obscuring what, to those on the ground, is crystal clear: that Israel systematically targets Palestinian journalists for doing their jobs.
