Palestinian Saeb Afana, 12, stands on the edge of a large crater from an Israeli missile strike that destroyed several graves, as he carries flowers at a cemetery in Gaza City, in the northern Gaza Strip, on Monday, July 28, 2014, to visit the grave of a relative, Ayman Afana, 24, who had been killed in an airstrike in the Sheik Radwan neighborhood some 10 days ago.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — A Gaza park was attacked Monday, killing at least 10 Palestinians, including children, a Palestinian health official said. Israelis and the Palestinians traded blame for the strike.

Children were playing on a swing when the strike hit the park in the Shati refugee camp on the edge of Gaza City, said Ayman Sahabani, head of the emergency room at nearby Shifa Hospital.

He gave the death toll and said 46 people also were wounded.

The strike on the park occurred a few minutes after the hospital's outpatient clinic was hit, leaving several people wounded. Camera crews were prevented from filming the area of impact at Shifa.

Gaza's police operations room, Civil Defense and Sahabani said the deaths and injuries were caused by Israeli airstrikes.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli army spokesman, denied Israel was involved. "This incident was carried out by Gaza terrorists whose rockets fell short and hit the Shifa Hospital and the Beach [Shati] camp," he said.

More ADG propaganda. Notice how the article is titled; "Israeli strikes on Gaza, rocket fire, break lull." An honest title would be "Hamas resumes rocket fire, Israeli strikes back, break lull." This is to influence LIV folks that don't get past the title.

“Israeli police Mickey Rosenfeld tells me men who killed 3 Israeli teens def[initely] lone cell, Hamas affiliated but not operating under leadership … Seems to contradict the line from Netanyahu government.” -- Jon Donnison, BBC, 7-25-14
It also seems that reporters dropped the ball in covering the murder of the three Israeli Teens. Yes, the government stonewalled them, but that's where gumshoe comes in. Jon Donnison managed to get something.
Even when the facts are not entirely known, a reporter can still find a source that disputes the reasonableness of the government's explanation. This is what investigative reporters did in Watergate when things didn't add up.
Despite the cacophony of talking heads, readers still make up their own minds -- but they need some help to figure things out.
