Mr. Mashharawi is “a man of enormous integrity and would never get involved with any sort of manipulation of images, let alone when the person dying is his own brother.”

Raafat Hamdouna, administrative director at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, said Friday that “Mahmoud Khalil Mashharawi, a 12-year-old, was brought to the hospital, and he was breathing, but he was hit in the head and all over his body by shrapnel. He died later in the hospital. He was treated by the Norwegian team.”
