CNN was criticized online early Friday morning after publishing a tweet appearing to suggest that Israel broke a 72-hour cease-fire brokered by the U.N. and U.S.

"8 Palestinians were killed, 15 hurt by Israeli artillery shelling, Palestinian news agency says, calling it a 'violation of the ceasefire,'" the tweet said.

The tweet made no mention of Israeli officials who denied Israel broke the truce. At the time the tweet had been posted, Israel had already said they had acted in self-defense and only retaliated after militants fired upon them.

Users on Twitter were quick to point this out to CNN.

The "worldwide leader in news" later posted a followup tweet, saying both sides were blaming each other for violating the cease-fire.

Israel later said that Hamas militants broke the truce when they fired on Israeli forces, killing two soldiers and possibly capturing another.
