Online users are taking their outrage out on ABC News by sharing memes poking fun at the news organization for misidentifying images of Palestinian bombing victims as Israelis.

During ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer's segment on Wednesday night, Sawyer described pictures of Palestinians in the rubble following an Israeli airstrike by saying, "Here an Israeli family trying to salvage what they can. One woman standing speechless among the ruins".

This is while, the Israeli regime continues to pound the besieged Gaza Strip, killing more Palestinians, including women and children.

Nearly 100 Palestinians have been killed in the ongoing Israeli attacks that started on Tuesday. According to Palestinian sources, one third of the casualties are women and children.

Israeli warplanes and drones have reportedly pounded more than 600 targets across the besieged coastal enclave over the past three days.
