Error (Newsweek, Carlos Ballesteros, 11/30/17): Susiya has been in Palestinian control since the 1830s. The village is located on private Palestinian land in the West Bank. According to the letter, "34 families — including 85 children — call Susiya their home and survive through subsistence farming and shepherding."

Correction (12/10/17): The village of Susiya is located in the occupied West Bank. According to the letter, "45 families — including 85 children — call Susiya their home and survive through subsistence farming and shepherding." Claims over Susiya are a microcosm of the larger territorial disputes between Israel and the Palestinians. The Israeli government has claimed control of the land since 1967, saying that the village's structures were built without official permits, thus giving the government permission to demolish what it sees as illegal settlements. Pro-Palestinian supporters in Israel and abroad claim Palestinians have farmed and grazed the land for centuries. …

Error (Newsweek.com, Orlando Crowcroft, 9/17/17): Then in May 2017, Hamas again surprised with a pledge to alter its charter and accept in principle a deal with Israel based on 1967 borders, effectively abandoning its commitment to Israel's destruction and paving the way for pace talks.

Correction (9/18/17): Then in May 2017, Hamas again surprised with a pledge to accept in principle a deal that would see a Palestinian state established on 1967 borders, paving the way for a role in peace talks—even if it retained its commitment to establishing a Palestinian state "from the river to the sea." …
