CAMERA Prompts LA Times Correction on Israeli Victim of Border Attack


CAMERA staff have elicited a correction on a Los Angeles Times article this week which wrongly identified the Israeli civilian killed in a June terror attack on the Israeli side of the Israeli-Egyptian border as a soldier. The error and correction follow:

Error (Los Angeles Times, Jeffrey Fleishman and Edmund Sanders, 8/6/12): A Sinai militant group, which included at least one extremist from Saudi Arabia, released a video last week claiming responsibility for a June attack along the border that killed one Israeli soldier.

Correction (8/8/12): Israeli border violence: In the Aug. 6 Section A, an article about an attack by militants along Israel's border with Egypt said that an Israeli slain during a previous assault in June was a soldier. The victim was a civilian.

CAMERA commends the Los Angeles Times for its prompt correction, and wonders, if the victim was a civilian, aren't the perpetrators "terrorists," not "militants"?
