CiF Watch Prompts Guardian Correction on Settlements


CiF Watch, an independent project of CAMERA, prompted a correction on a Guardian article which vastly overstated the amount of settlement contstruction recently approved by Binyamin Netanyahu. The error and correction follow:
Error (Guardian, Phoebe Greenwood, 7/23/12): As recently as 8 June, [Catherine Ashton] issued a statement deploring Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu's decision to build an additional 800 settlements in occupied territory -- compensation for the 17 Israeli families the country's high court had ordered to be removed from the Migron settlement.

Correction (Posted online as of 7/24/12): This article was amended on 24 July 2012. The original said Binyamin Netanyahu had decided to build an additional 800 settlements in occupied territory. This has been corrected to 800 homes.
