Even as international media outlets answered the call to improve coverage of Palestinian fatalities by noting that those killed by Israeli fire in Jenin last week were confirmed combatants, Israeli daily Haaretz failed to update its English and Hebrew-language reports with this highly relevant information.
News database searches indicate that not one single mainstream Western media outlet reported on the explosives lab and 15 primed bombs destroyed by Israeli forces in Balata refugee camp.
Haaretz expands its category of inherently suspect jurists. Rabbis and the vast and diverse pool of Bar-Ilan University graduates join the paper's growing list of intrinsically compromised judges alongside those living in the disputed West Bank.
Ashraf Ibrahim, killed in a gunbattle with Israeli troops, was a Palestinian intelligence officer. He also moonlighted as a fighter with the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a designated terrorist organization affiliated with Fatah. News stories reported the former work while leaving out the latter.

Hamas "knows about the ethics of war and how to look after the prisoners of war it holds," writes Hanin Majadli in Haaretz. Just try to tell that to Avera Mengistu or Hisham al-Sayed.

While Times of Israel and BBC Arabic commendably improved their respective articles after initially failing to report that slain Palestinian teen Jibril Muhammad Ladaa was a Hamas fighter, Haaretz, Reuters and AFP have yet to add the key information.
In his life before his death, Adnan Khader had plenty to say on the question of using the body as "a tool to achieve change," as the New York Times put it. None of it, though, was in Gandhi's nonviolent spirit.
CAMERA prompts correction after Haaretz's English edition erroneously stated that a Palestinian gunman fired on two Israeli men. In fact, the Huwara gunman fired on David and Rachel Stern, a husband and wife couple.
Reuters, Haaretz and The Jerusalem Post correct headlines falsely reporting that Nasser Abu Hmeid died in Israeli prison, fueling unsubstantiated Palestinian charges of medical neglect.
