Flashpoints narrator is wrong and guilty of incendiary language

Excuse me!! But the Flashpoints narrator said her FACE exploded. I don't see any evidence of a face which exploded. I am not arguing that she died. All accounts seem to indicate her death was from gunfire.

But the Flashpoints narrator tried to phrase Noran Deeb's death in the most shocking language possible. It looks to me like she exceeded the bounds of factual information with her inflammatory comment about a little 10 year-old girl's face exploding. The narrator also had to put it in the context of "this is what the IDF does all the time". Even when the doctor interviewed said that they were not certain in their report of who did the firing, the narrator forges on with a certainty that it was the IDF and even that it was an assasination.

She is wrong in this case. It appears the IDF had nothing to do with the shooting.

And she is wrong in her assertion that the IDF mindlessly shoots Palestinian children while they walk to school.

In the few cases which have gotten a lot of press coverage, such as the Chris Hedges article, Mohamed al-Dura, Iman al-Hams, and now Noran Deeb, NONE of them showed that the IDF is picking children off from guardtower posts with sharpshooters.
