The government press office threatened to deny foreign journalists accreditation for false headlines

The foreign media coverage of the terrorist attack in Jerusalem that killed 19-year-old employee of the border police (MAGAN) Adar Cohen, once again aroused anger in Israel.

So, the TV company CBS reported that «3 Palestinians killed in the ongoing cycle of violence.» After the intervention of the Foreign Ministry, the headline was corrected to read as follows: «Israeli police killed three Palestinians, allegedly terrorists.»

Radio station «Voice of America» reported about «Three Palestinians and one Israeli policeman killed in attack in Jerusalem.»

Note that Russian website BBC news service also issued a message entitled «the Israeli Police killed three Palestinians in Jerusalem.» Only a few hours later the title was replaced by the neutral «In the attack on border guards in Jerusalem are killed and wounded».

According to radio station «Sieves Beth», the Director of the state press Bureau Nitzan Hyun said he would consider the possibility to withdraw the accreditation of journalists and editors producing titles contrary to the truth.
