CAMERA Staff Prompts Washington Post Correction on Gaza Borders


CAMERA staff this week elicited a correction at the Washington Post which had published an illustration falsely stating that Israel controls all of Gaza's borders. The error and correction follow:

Error (Washington Post, map by Laris Karklis, 12/4/11): Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, but still controls all border crossings, the waters off its coast and its airspace.

Correction (12/7/11): Text on a map with a Dec. 4 Page One article about Israel's use of drone aircraft incorrectly said that Israel controls all border crossings with Gaza. It controls the crossings between Gaza and Israel but not the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt.

 

CAMERA commends the Washington Post for its timely correction. The corrected online graphic appears at left.
