‘Hamas at the fence’: Israeli media’s spin on Gaza protests

Without reports from Israeli journalists in Gaza, media in Israeli is mostly offering only the unquestioned repetition of the military’s and government’s view on the Great March of Return protests at the Israeli-Gaza border.

The Great March of Return protests in Gaza have been portrayed by Israel’s government and military as Hamas-led, controlled and inspired.

There has not been any recognition that wider Gaza society has become involved.


Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith reports now from West Jerusalem on how this narrative is reflected in the country’s Hebrew language media.
