Washington Post Called Out for Caption Describing Israeli Woman’s Children as Being ‘Detained’ by Hamas Terrorists


In its coverage of families in despair over missing loved ones, The Washington Post captioned a photo of missing children, kidnapped by murderous terrorists, as being “detained.”

After being called out on social media for downplaying the barbaric actions, The Post made a stealth edit to change the wording to “taken hostage” with no explanation.

Over 1,400 have been murdered by Hamas terrorists, including nearly 300 kids.  At least 120 were also taken hostage and moved to Gaza.
