The Daily Mail claim within the Palestinian media that Aisha Lulu, a five-year-old from Gaza who recently passed away from a brain tumour, had died alone in a Jerusalem hospital because COGAT refused to grant permission for any of Aisha’s family members to accompany her, was proven to be fake news weeks ago
We immediately filed a complaint with Daily Mail editors, taking issue with their claim that the IDF broke the ceasefire with Hamas when they used force in response to violent border riots. After several days, editors upheld our complaint, and revised the sentence in question to more accurately contextualise the Palestinian riots in relation to the ceasefire.
Following communication with UK Media Watch, editors at the Daily Mail corrected an article which had falsely claimed that no terror group in Gaza claimed responsibility for the recent barrage of rockets fired at Israel.
For 3rd time in 5 months, UKMW prompts Daily Mail correction to “Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital” claim.
Though we’ve been very successful at prompting editors to revise language falsely suggesting that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital, most media outlets nonetheless stubbornly refuse to acknowledge that Jerusalem holds this status.
Despite the fact that we’ve prompted corrections on this point continually over the years, UK media outlets continue to make errors regarding Israel’s capital – by claiming, explicitly or implicitly, that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital. We caught two such errors yesterday, one at the Daily Express and the other at the Daily Mail.
UKMW prompts correction to Daily Mail article accepting Hamas claim “Israel killed” Ibrahim Abu Thuraya
UK Media Watch prompted a correction to a Daily Mail article which reported, as if it’s a fact, Gaza Health Ministry claims that Israel killed Ibrahim Abu Thuraya during violent protests on the Gaza border last month. The new article has several additional sentences outlining the IDF statement which casts serious doubt about these Palestinian claims.
Here are recent corrections prompted by UKMW to articles at the Guardian, Daily Mail and Independent.
The White House expressed the view that the overwhelming majority of settlement construction is not an impediment to peace. However, most UK media reports on the announcement instead focused on the muted condemnation of new settlements and construction beyond existing settlement boundaries.
