Previously, we posted about an article published in the Telegraph on Sept. 18th which included the following passage concerning the U.S. position on Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
We noted that, in fact, the US government has not characterized the settlements as “illegal” – opting instead for the non-legal designation of “illegitimate.” We tweeted the Telegraph journalist who wrote the article, and emailed editors, calling out the error. Today, they corrected the passage, which now reads:
We commend Telegraph editors for the correction.
