Haaretz's English edition corrects after mistakenly identifying terrorist Samir Kuntar, convicted for the brutal 1979 murders of the Haran family members, as Palestinian. He was a Lebanese Druze.
CAMERA prompts a forthright correction after Haaretz's English edition falsely stated that Palestinian families had decades ago purchased disputed land where the Baten al-Hawa enclave of Silwan in Jerusalem is located.
Haaretz contributor Odeh Bisharat falsely argues that President Trump's executive order targeting campus antisemitism will place Israel "above criticism," while the definition that the president endorses explicitly specifies otherwise.
Haaretz erases the United Nations' distinction between the unique mandate for Palestinian refugees, which includes their descendants for perpetuity, versus refugees from the rest of the world, who don't pass on their refugee status, and falsely reports that 5.5 million Palestinians "fled their native lands."
Defending Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in face of widespread criticism of antisemitism under his leadership, Haaretz's Gideon Levy himself peddles age old tropes which fall under the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance working definition of antisemitism.
CAMERA prompts correction today after Haaretz erroneously reported in Hebrew and English that Israel imposed a fishing ban on the Gaza Strip. Israel reduced the fishing zone to six nautical miles, but there is no ban.
In recent articles, Haaretz alleges that the reasons for the 2017 arrest of Khalida Jarrar, a former Palestinian lawmaker, are "still classified" despite the fact that its own coverage at the time noted that the army cited her increased activity with the PFLP terror group.
CAMERA prompts correction after Haaretz's Chemi Shalev referred to the July 2014 kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens as "the kidnapping of three Israeli soldiers."

Tens of thousands of pro-Israel marchers came out for Manhattan's Celebrate Israel Parade, but Haaretz's headline and prominent photograph featured a miniscule minority of anti-Israel demonstrators.
