Washington Post Corrects Gaza Settlements Error

CAMERA staff, members, and others elicited the following July 28 correction concerning the amount of Gaza Strip land occupied by Jewish settlements.

Error (Washington Post, John Ward Anderson, 7/23/04): A little more than 8,000 settlers occupy approximately 40 percent of the land in the Gaza Strip. . . .

Correction (7/28/04): A July 23 article misstated the amount of land in the Gaza Strip occupied by Jewish settlers. Although there is disagreement on the exact amount, estimates range from about 12 percent to about 15 percent. When Israeli military installations, roads and security zones are included, estimates range from about 15 percent to about 38 percent.
