Bad Headline

CNN can't quite write a correct headline:

Israeli airstrikes target Gaza after multiple attacks

Maybe they finally attempted to indicate that Israel was reacting defensively to a terror attack but

a) no dead are mentioned;

b) the dead are not identified as civilians;

c) and the syntax actually allows the reader to comprehend a falsehood, that perhaps the airstrikes came after Israel had previoulsy attacked Gaza, instead of Gaza terrorists attcking Israel first.
