The Palestinian Information Center has fabricated a story of doctors from overseas coming to offer medical assistance to wounded Gazan protesters.

You couldn’t make this up. Except this Palestinian group, which has half a million followers just did. They used a picture of actress Katherine Heigl who played Dr Izzie Stevens in the American TV drama, Grey’s Anatomy from 2005-2010.

Incredibly they tried to get away with describing her as a “French doctor” who has arrived in the Gaza Strip “to offer medical help to the wounded Palestinian protesters”.

She isn’t French, nor is she a real doctor. And she certainly isn’t in the Gaza Strip.

There is also no proof that any “French doctor” has arrived.

The group has since issued an apology saying they are “committed to truth and credible news”. We will leave that for you to decide.
