As Palestinians are bragging about setting hundreds of fires in southern Israel, burning hundreds of acres and causing untold amount of damage, Palestinians are claiming that “settlers” are setting fires to their fields.
We’ve discussed Ghassan Daghlas before. He is literally paid by the Palestinian Authority to make up stories about what “settlers” are doing. Practically none of his accusations have any proof, and many of them are proven fabrications, but they get published in Palestinian Arabic media as fact – and sometimes even mainstream journalists accept his lies at face value.
He has accused Jews many times of setting Palestinian fields on fire, and today is no exception.
Daghlas claimed that a group of settlers from Yitzhar set fire to land in the town of Asira al-Qibliya, south of Nablus.
He added that the fire “came on dozens of dunums planted with olive trees.”
The photo accompanying the article shows a brush fire, common in the dry season, with no olive trees in sight.
Daghlas’ would be out of a job if he couldn’t make things up.
