Sawyer invited ridicule with the error in her intro to a report on the developments in the region, with pro-Palestinian Twitter users mocking the anchor with sarcastic tweets regarding the five-day operation that has thus far claimed the lives of over 100 Palestinians.

The Twitter hashtag #TweetLikeABC generated thousands of entries from pro-Palestinian supporters who lambasted the American news network for the error.
