NY Times Demands Israel Stop Pushing ‘Provably False’ Claim About Photographer in Scathing Letter - Mediaite
It was highlighted this week when verified images of a grieving grandfather holding a dead Palestinian baby were widely denigrated as "a doll" in a slew of social media posts.
Photojournalist Ali Jadallah posted an Instagram story, writing: "I shared the name of this baby, and still Israeli media are claiming he is a doll. No, he is not a doll. He is a human that was killed by Israeli airstrikes."
Several of Jadallah's photos were supplied to Getty Images, a respected global photo agency, for its client base of news outlets worldwide.
Getty's caption for the photos read: "Dead body of a 5-month-old Palestinian baby named Muhammad Hani Al-Zahar, is brought to the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital by his mother Asmahan Attia Al-Zahar and grandfather Attia Abu Amra after the Israeli airstrikes at the end of the humanitarian pause in Deir Al-Balah, Gaza on December 1, 2023. 32 Palestinians were killed within 3 hours of the end of the humanitarian pause in Gaza."
The Reuters news agency also supplied the images of baby Muhammad.
