Israel, The Media's Special Interest Item.

If you substituted Israel for Turkey and Hamas for PKK and Gaza for Iraq, this item would be front page news:

Turkish ground forces entered northern Iraq Tuesday for the first time since 2011, conducting what an official termed a "short-term" operation to hunt Kurdish rebels behind attacks on Turkish soldiers and police.Without giving specifics, a Turkish government official said the troops crossed during a "hot pursuit" action against the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).The Turkish air force carried out strikes early Tuesday on suspected PKK bases in Iraq. The state-run Anadolu news agency said more than 50 Turkish aircraft were involved in the six hours of raids, killing up to 40 rebels.The Turkish operations follow a roadside bomb attack that killed 16 Turkish soldiers Sunday in the Hakkari region

But it wasn't.

Israel is a media special interest item.
