NY Mag reporter forced to explain viral post that it was ‘overstatement’ to claim Hamas ‘beheaded’ infants

New York Magazine Intelligencer features writer Eric Levitz responded Sunday to backlash over a post he made on whether babies were actually “beheaded” or not in Israel by Hamas terrorists, where he said it wasn’t fully proven that occurred.

“According to this report,” Levitz wrote in response to an investigation by an international team of forensic pathologists, “Hamas militants tied a parent and child together and then burned them alive.”

“Last night, I asserted that this report indicated that babies were beheaded,” Levitz wrote on Sunday. “This was an overstatement. I should have said that the report established that babies were found headless, a fact that lends plausibility to claims of beheading, but which does not prove them.”
