Ali Shihda Abu Afash, 36 years old, was killed on August 13, 2014 when an undetonated bomb dropped by an Israeli F-16 blew up as Gaza police engineers were working to neutralize it in the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahia. He was a Palestinian translator and journalist working for the Gaza Centre for Media Freedom, the sister organization of the Doha Centre for Media Freedom (DCMF). The Doha Centre for Media Freedom wrote: “Afash has been instrumental in strengthening ties between DCMF and Gaza Centre for Media Freedom and has worked tirelessly to shed light on the plight of journalists working in Gaza.” He spent three months at DCMF reporting on the challenges facing Palestinian journalists and developing new methods of training. Ali is survived by his wife and two daughters, ages 5 and 6.
Afash was killed along with Rahed Taysir al-Hom and Associated Press agency journalist Simone Camilli. Five people were killed in the explosion and several others were wounded.

PATENTLY FALSE NARRATIVE, ORIGINAL HUMANIZE PALESTINE WEBSITE
The original Humanize Palestine website contains many narratives whose stories overlap. Some terror operatives on the website are either related by family, by the terror organizations they belong to, or by a shared incident. All the narratives are false and in effect, conceal the true identity of the terrorist. The Ali Abu Afash narrative is an example of this obfuscation.
The Abu Afash narrative states that five “PEOPLE” were killed in the explosion. In reality, six individuals were killed, five of them were members of a Foreign Terrorist Organization, including Afash. Four were described as Gaza police engineers. In reality they were all members of the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades terror organization.
ORIGINAL HUMANIZE PALESTINE WEBSITE
“…undetonated bomb … blew up as Gaza police engineers were working to neutralize it….”
“Afash was killed along with Rahed Taysir al-Hom and Associated Press agency journalist Simone Camilli … Five people were killed in the explosion….”
Six people were killed when the undetonated bomb exploded, Afash, Simone Camilli who was an AP photo journalist, and four others. The four others were not “Gaza police engineers” as stated on the original Humanize Palestine website. They were police engineers in name only, in reality they were all members of the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas. They were all “Qassamis”, an Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades soldier or fighter. The reason they were all present may be explained by the fact that Hamas “harvests” the explosive materials found in unexploded ordinance and then uses it to manufacture their own IEDs.
These are the five “Gaza police engineers” as they appear on the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades website:
1- “Taysir al Houm, head of the police bomb disposal unit” (NY Times article)
2- “an other police expert” killed instantly (NY Times article)
3- “…fourth member of the bomb squad … died later.” (NY Times article)
4- “Hazem Abu Murad, chief of bomb squad” (NY Times article)
