CBC - Israeli Government Echo

Look at this paragraph in today's CBC article:

"Israel's Foreign Ministry said on Monday that a security guard at the country's embassy in Jordan opened fire, killing two Jordanians, after being attacked by one of them with a screwdriver."

Absolutely unbelievable. One screwdriver. Two people killed.

But for CBC - if the Israeli Government says it, it must be true.

Why "Israeli Government SAID"? Why not 'ALLEGED", or "CLAIMED". Especially when what was "said" is so preposterous, it should be qualified. If it were any other government, including Canada's, saying anything so questionable, CBC would use "alleged", but not with the Israeli Government.
