This photo often appears in reputable media & has been presented at the UN misidentified as a Kashmiri child suffering pellet gun injuries. The little girl is in fact a Palestinian who suffered trauma & shrapnel damage in the 2014 Israeli carpet bombing siege of Gaza. Correcting the misidentification is not a pedantic exercise but to show respect for the children of Gaza who are sustaining genocide.
