In a piece for Israeli web-magazine +972, Israeli-American journalist Joseph Dana writes about the effect that social media has had in covering the Palestinian Territories.
YouTube user jeaunkes uploaded this video of Sunday's protest at Qalandia, a checkpoint between the West Bank and Jerusalem.
Joseph Dana covered the June 5th protest as well. Throughout the day he live-tweeted photos and updates from the ground.
As Dana tweeted from Qalandia, The Jerusalem Post reported that Palestinian protesters threw gasoline bombs at Israeli soldiers.
Dana's tweets from Qalandia contradicted the Post's reporting.
In his +972 post the next day, Dana challenged the Post's version of events.
One Twitter user, avimayer, criticized Joseph's description of the protest as "nonviolent" and "unarmed."
After a long back-and-forth between the two on Twitter, Joseph commented that the Israeli Army did not give any photographic proof of the charge that gasoline bombs were used in the protest.
