After communication with CAMERA, Insider corrected language that asserted as a matter-of-fact that the Gaza Strip is "Israeli-occupied" territory. The new language is an improvement, but still fails to note that many legal scholars view the territory as being no longer occupied following Israel's full withdrawal from the territory.
AFP's coverage of three Gaza fisherman killed in an explosion Sunday strikingly omits multiple indications originating from the Palestinian side that a misfired Hamas rocket was responsible for the fatalities.
In an article noting the sense of freedom that the urban sport parkour brings to Gazans "locked in conflict with neighbouring Israel, which blockades the enclave," Reuters ignores the far more restrictive Egyptian blockade. While just over 25,000 people exited the territory via the Egyptian-controlled Rafah crossing this year, more than double exited via the Israeli-controlled Erez crossing.
The Washington Post's reporting on the Israel-Islamist conflict has fallen back to a well-worn habit: infantilizing Palestinians. Recent Post reports have taken to treating Palestinians as perpetual victims, depriving them of independent agency.
As anyone with a passing familiarity with the region knows, there have been no Israeli settlements in Gaza since 2005.
In Arabic and French, AFP rightly reports that the Kerem Shalom crossing was reopened over a week ago and fuel deliveries to Gaza resumed following a three-week closure. The English report, in contrast, misleadingly reports only that crossing was closed last month, ignoring its subsequent reopening.
In recent weeks, Palestinian arsonists have launched dozens of incendiary balloons every single day; not dozens over the last few weeks, as an AP photo caption erroneously stated.
In a report about 12 rockets fired at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip Aug. 21 overnight, Reuters neglects to mention that a home in Sderot was hit and suffered heavy damage. The article noted only that "buildings and vehicles" in Sderot were hit.
After extended communication with CAMERA Arabic, Independent Arabia decides to end its practice of erroneously referring to Israeli communities near the Gaza Strip as "settlements."
AFP abandons its "duty to seek the truth and not passively report information as it is presented to us" when it reports without challenge or clarification the false claim that Israel's army destroyed all of Neve Dekalim's hothouses before the 2005 disengagement.
