CiF Watch prompts 2nd Guardian correction to claim the murdered teens were ‘settlers’

A July 2nd article by Haroon Siddique, Matthew Weaver and Peter Beaumont (Palestinian demonstrators clash with police over suspected revenge attackopened with the following passage:

settlers

However, as a previous CiF Watch-prompted Guardian correction (to a July 13th article by Peter Beaumont) indicated, Eyal Yifrach, Gil-ad Shaar and Naftali Frankel were NOT all “settlers”.
Shortly after complaining to Guardian editors (within the past hour) over this latest error, they corrected the passage.

It now reads:
corrected
The following addendum was also added:
addendum

We commend Guardian editors on their speedy correction.
(Note: CiF Watch also prompted a correction to a June 15th article at the Independent over the same false claim.)
