"IOF distribute pictures of alleged temple in place of Aqsa Mosque" (Palestinian Information Center)

Originally, Ha'aretz ran a story about a picture of Jerusalem with the Al-Aqsa mosque photoshopped out which was included in some IDF literature about Chanukah. This news-site adds the invented detail that the photo also depicted a rebuilt Beit Hamikdash:
The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) have circulated pictures of the Aqsa Mosque site showing the Dome of Rock was removed and the alleged Jewish temple mount was erected in its place.

The Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage said the distribution of such pictures to members of the Israeli army was intended to send a serious massage to the Muslim nation about the Zionist intent to establish their alleged temple on the ruins of the Aqsa Mosque.

The foundation highlighted that "the Aqsa Mosque has been purely an Islamic holy site since it was built until today and never been a temple," and added that "the talk about the alleged temple is part of the Jewish myths, fantasies and false allegations."
An photoshopped picture is a non-story. Palestinian denial of history is the real story. (And see EOZ)
