3. Was it a Journalist?

 

I'm reading it as the car behind the car carrying the journalists.

7. At least since 2003: Two cameramen killed as US shell hits hotel

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/1427056/Two-cameramen-killed-as-US-shell-hits-hotel.html

By Adrien Jaulmes in Baghdad
12:01AM BST 09 Apr 2003
An American tank fired a single round into the 15th floor of a hotel packed with foreign journalists yesterday, killing two cameramen.

Facing intense criticism, the Pentagon said snipers had been firing on troops from the Hotel Palestine. But journalists said they had not heard any gunshots.

11. But it appears as if the IDF is targeting journalists

 

And then calling them terrorists after they die...

15. Death apparently has magical qualities

what before was a wedding party or a family of 12 in a mud walled hut or a roomful of journalists or a school of children or a hospital of patients become
"militants" after they are bombed.
Not just limited to American drone attacks, I should point out. God knows there are too many examples from Bosnia to Libya to Iraq to Syria, etc etc etc etc ad nauseum.
