Error (Reuters, Ali Sawafta, 3/22/14): Including Saturday's incident, Israeli forces have killed at least 60 Palestinians and injured almost 9000 since the resumption of negotiations last July.

Correction (Refiled 3/26/14): The Palestinian Negotiation Affairs Department says that including Saturday's incident, Israeli forces have killed at least 60 Palestinians and injured almost 900 since the resumption of negotiations last July.

Fact: Palestinian officials have been alleging that 60 Palestinians were killed since July 30, but a review of figures from various NGOs does not substantiate the claim. Monthly Humanitarian Bulletins from the United Nations' Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (August 2013 - February 2014, which is the most recent monthly report available), reveal that 38 Palestinians were killed during that time period; another two were killed during the week of March 4 -10, one was killed on March 19 (news reports), and three on March 22 (news reports), for a total of 44 Palestinian fatalities since July 30 through March 22. A tally of the weekly reports from the Palestinian Center for Human Rights comes in slightly higher, with 47 fatalities, including Saturday's fatalities. (This includes several who died from earlier wounds, and an elderly man who died from tear gas inhalation during a clash.) According to B'Tselem, 34 Palestinians were killed from the end of July through February (latest figures available). If we add six more for March (known from news reports, as detailed above), the total is 40 Palestinians killed since peace talks began through Saturday's fatalities.



Error (Reuters, 8/12/08): Under the proposal, Israel would return to the Palestinians some 92.7 percent of the occupied West Bank, plus all of the Gaza Strip, according to Western and Palestinian officials briefed on the negotiations.

Error (Reuters, Cynthia Johnston, 10/19/05): In October, the Authority broke ground on a project funded by the United Arab Emirates to build apartment towers for poor or homeless people in the coastal strip, which is the most densely populated place on earth and home to 1.4 million people.

Correction (Updated story, 10/23/05): In October, the Authority broke ground on a project funded by the United Arab Emirates to build apartment towers for poor or homeless people in the coastal strip, which is among the most densely populated places on earth and home to 1.4 million people.



Error (Reuters, Michael Conlon, 10/13/05): The Geneva-based World Council of churches has backed divestment in companies profiting from the occupation of Palestinian territories. Last summer, the United Church of Christ rejected divestment on the same issue at its convention...

Correction (Updated story, 10/18/05): Last summer, the United Church of Christ's General Synod endorsed a broad "economic leverage" program rather than one keyed specifically to divestment, though it retained that as an option.



Error (Reuters, Dan Williams, 7/11/05): The Gaza plan funding could be the biggest U.S. aid package to Israel since 1992, when Washington paid $3 billion to make up for damage sustained from Iraqi missile salvoes in the Gulf war.

Correction (Updated story): The Gaza plan funding could be the biggest U.S. aid package to Israel since 1992, when Washington paid $3 billion, including some $650 million in extra funding to make up for damage sustained from Iraqi missile salvoes in the Gulf war.



Error (Reuters, Nidal al-Mughrabi, 10/16/03): The announcement of the arrests came as international pressure mounted on Palestinian authorities to crack down on militants after the bombing, the first to kill Americans during a three-year-old uprising against Israel for statehood.

Correction (10/16/03, subsequent stories): They announced the arrests as international pressure mounted on Palestinian authorities to crack down on militants after the bombing of an American diplomatic convoy. It was the first to kill Americans during a three-year-old Palestinian uprising against Israel for statehood.



Error (Reuters in Boston Globe, 8/20/00): Israel captured Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war and has declared the city its "united, eternal capital."

Correction (8/27/00): A Reuters news service story in last Sunday’s editions should have said that Israel captured East Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war. Israel already controlled West Jerusalem.



Error (Reuters in Washington Times, 8/8/00): U.N. Resolution 242 demands that Israel withdraw from all lands it occupied in the 1967 Middle East War, including Arab East Jerusalem, claimed by Palestinians as capital of a future state.

Correction (8/10/00): A Reuters news agency article carried in Tuesday’s editions misstated the terms of U.N. Resolution 242, which was passed by the Security Council following the 1967 Middle East War. The resolution says Israel should withdraw "from territories of recent conflict."
