Toronto Star Headline Casts Doubt that Palestinian Wielding Knives Attacked Israeli Soldier

January 31, 2021

On January 31, the Toronto Star published an Associated Press article with a headline that cast doubt that a Palestinian terrorist who wielded three knives and charged at an Israeli soldier was an attacker.

The headline uses the word “alleged” in scare quotes, whereas it’s an undisputed fact that the attacker tried to stab an Israeli soldier.


Video evidence confirms this attack and here are photos of the knives he wielded from the IDF:

As there was no doubt about the veracity of this matter, HonestReporting Canada told the Toronto Star that the word “alleged” should be removed in the interests of fairness and accuracy.

We await the Star’s reply to our concerns. Stay tuned to this page for future updates.
