CBS news on the deadly Palestinian attack in Jerusalem today: '3 Palestinians killed as violence continue'

In what seems by now as a routine in certain global channels after every deadly Palestinian terror attack, the distorted headline on the website of the American TV network CBS on Wednesday was stating that "3 Palestinians killed as daily violence grinds on", without any mention of the fact they were shot and killed after attacking officers with guns and knives, killing a female officer, and seriuosly wounding another female officer.

The 3 Palestinians killed were those who carried out the combined shooting and stabbing attack, and were shot dead at the scene.

"This time we will not let it pass quietly," Israel GPO head Nitzan Hen said on Wednesday. "We are considering rescinding press passes from journalists and editors who are negligent in their work and present headlines that flip the reality." Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said. this is “unprecedented, a slanted and false headline,”.

After causing a, the headline was changed a few hours later to: “Israeli police kill 3 alleged Palestinian attackers.”

CBS did not issue any statement or response to queries over the headline.

Al Jazeera's breaking news tweet regarding the Palestinian attack in Jerusalem was also similiar to the CBS one: 3 Palestinians shot and killed by Israeli police
