UPI Headline Correction: Rockets Fired At, Not From, Southern Israel

CAMERA’s Israel office today prompted correction after a United Press International headline erroneously reported that rockets were fired from southern Israel Saturday night, as opposed at southern Israel, by terror groups in the Gaza Strip. The Feb. 15 headline had erred: “Rockets fired from southern Israel near Gaza Strip.”

As the accompanying article by Christen McCurdy’s correctly reported: “Two rockets were fired Saturday from the Gaza strip at southern Israel, Israel’s military said Saturday.”

In response to communication from CAMERA, editors immediately amended the headline, which now correctly reports: “Rockets fired at southern Israel near Gaza Strip.”
