CiF Watch prompts correction to erroneous Times of London headline

On Aug. 5th, the Times of London published an article (pay wall) titled ‘Refugee camp hit as Israel admits it broke truce’.

However, the article didn’t include any information even suggesting that Israel had “admitted” breaking the truce.  Indeed, news sites reported that the time of the attack (aimed at a senior Hamas operative) was clearly in dispute.

After several complaints to Times editors, they agreed to revise the headline.

revisedThe print edition ran this correction:

times 2


We commend Times editors for their positive response to our complaint.

  1. The correction needs a correction. Israel attacked an area that was predetermined NOT to be included in the truce. The truce included only a different part of Gaza. Again, either lazy, ignorant, or malicious. Take your pick.

  2. Why is there an internationally supported refugee camp permanently housing non-refugees? Perhaps the Times of London can explain how the Arab Palestinian refugee racket requires emptying the wallets of gullible western donors to further war aims and how the meaning of the term ‘refugee’ has been corrupted to accomplish this in order to support the TImes’ headline’s assertion of the attacking of a ‘refugee camp’.

  3. It’s not much of a retraction as it leaves the idea in the readers mind that the evil juices attacked a refugee camp.

    In fact id go so far as to say it’s no retraction at all.
