A live Magnay report from a hill overlooking the Gaza Strip on Thursday showed Zionists who could be heard cheering as missiles were fired at innocent Palestinians in Gaza. Following the report, Magnay tweeted that the Israelis who were cheering the bombing threatened her.
“Israelis on hill above Sderot cheer as bombs land on #gaza; threaten to ‘destroy our car if I say a word wrong’. Scum,” she tweeted.
While the tweet was quickly removed, CNN pulled Magnay out of her post covering Israel’s offensive against Palestinians and assigned her to Moscow.
Magnay’s removal from her post comes one day after another American news network, NBC News, pulled out its correspondent Ayman Mohyeddin from the Gaza Strip without any explanation, a move which sparked widespread criticism of the news outlet for censoring the atrocities committed by the Zionist regime against Palestinians.
The NBC News correspondent, who personally witnessed the Zionist military’s brutal murdering of four Palestinian boys who were playing on a beach in Gaza on Wednesday, was ordered by the network’s executives to leave the Palestinian territory immediately.
Mohyeddin’s witness account of the killing of the four young boys by Israeli gunboat fire has gone viral online. On the air, Mohyeldin recounted how, moments before their death, he was kicking a soccer ball with the four boys, who were between the ages of 9 and 11 and all from the same family.
The Zionist regime’s offensive against the Gaza Strip is in its eleventh day. At least 292 Palestinians have been killed in the occupying regime’s aerial and ground assaults on the besieged enclave.
Since the Tel Aviv regime’s ground incursion into Gaza on Thursday night, 50 Gazans, including children, infants, women, and elderly people, have been killed.
On Friday, US President Barack Obama told reporters at the White House that he has assured Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Washington’s support for Tel Aviv’s assault on the Gaza Strip.
