Sky News asks Israeli Defence Force to remove its news report from Twitter feed

Complaint: The IDF has since removed the tweet

Sky News has publicly requested the Israeli Defence Force remove one of the broadcaster's video news reports from its Twitter feed for taking it “out of context”.

The IDF, which has attracted a lot of attention throughout the most recent stage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict due to the real-time updates on its Twitter feed, agreed to remove the article upon the request.

The @IDFSpokesperson tweet, now removed, stated: “Sky News reporter alarmed by a rocket launched by Hamas from near her hotel in Gaza yesterday,” and carried a link to the Sky News piece.

However, the broadcaster said it had been used without permission and taken out of context.

Other recent controversial IDF tweets have used images of rockets hitting London.
