McClatchy Typo Multiplies Palestinian Deaths


One can only hope that the following figures were a result of a simple typo in Sheera Frenkel‘s report for McClatchy on Israel’s current problems on its northern and southern borders.

We are used to seeing Palestinian casualty figures tossed around by the media with little regard for the source or differentiation between Palestinian combatants and civilians.

But it’s the first time we’ve seen the figure inflated by ten times.

A typo maybe but these are the sorts of “minor” errors that make a bad situation for Israel even worse.
