CAMERA prompts correction of a caption which falsely stated that the huge, prominent page-one photograph of a tightly-packed crowd of Ethiopian Jewry celebrating Sigd with not a mask in sight, was from Monday.

Update: CAMERA prompts correction after Haaretz falsely reports that Israel's Shin Bet is monitoring citizens' cellphone conversations in a bid to stem coronavirus spread. The security service is tracking the location of phones -- not conversations.
