Bloomberg Corrects Reference to Gaza as "Occupied"
After communications with CAMERA, Bloomberg commendably published a correction to a caption that wrongly described Gaza City as being in occupied territory.
The original caption stated,
Residential apartment blocks and commercial buildings stand on the skyline in Gaza City, Palestinian Occupied Territories, on Thursday, June 25, 2015.
The caption now reads,
Residential apartment blocks and commercial buildings stand on the skyline in Gaza City on Thursday, June 25, 2015.
The following correction is appended to the article
A photo caption on an earlier version of this story identified Gaza City as a part of the occupied Palestinian territories without attributing it to the United Nations. Israel, which pulled out of the strip in 2005, rejects this characterization.
