In the latest violence in Jenin, all 11 of the Palestinian victims were "militants", though you have to read the news carefully to figure that out. And there was a "nationalistic" shooting here in W. Jerusalem that injured 2 (report).

Mustafa Barghouti is another Palestinian spokesman who lies baldfacedly to the Western media and is never challenged. In this article on a Palestinian ambulance driver who tried to smuggle a suicide bomber's belt, Barghouti claims IDF fire has killed 21 doctors and nurses in ambulances. I'm certain this is BS (more later).

I saw Barghouti on the BBC after the Sbarro pizzeria bombing in Aug 2001. Then-PM Barak responded to the bombing by destroying some empty PA buildings (no casualties), and Barghouti went on and on about it was an unprecedented attack on a civilian area and it was only by a miracle that weren't large numbers of civilian casualties.
