Just how peaceful were those “peaceful protesters” who were killed trying to storm the Israel-Gaza border? Well, at least 50 of them were bona fide terrorists:

More from the Times of Israel:
A Hamas official on Wednesday acknowledged that 50 of the 62 Palestinians reported killed during Gaza border riots on Monday and Tuesday were members of the Islamist terrorist group, bringing the total number of known members of terror groups among the fatalities up to 53.
“In the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, 50 of them were Hamas,” said Hamas official Salah Bardawil in an interview with the Palestinian Baladna news outlet.
“This proves what so many have tried to ignore: Hamas is behind these riots, and the branding of the riots as ‘peaceful protests’ could not be further from the truth,” said IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.
50 terrorists trying to overrun a border fence is a militant incursion, not a protest https://t.co/9d8nYxGXMl

Hamas is hilariously good at blowing American media narratives up, among other things. https://t.co/9E1Dt4EVBb

It’s true. Not that the media will even care:
Hamas: We orchestrated riots. They weren't peaceful. 50 of the dead are Hamas members.
Media: WHY ARE THE JEWS SO MEAN

The number and proportion of terrorists killed keeps going up, and yet media narrative of "massacre of mostly unarmed peace protesters" has not adjusted — and never will. https://t.co/AAKRKaD8jX
