Daily Mirror somehow places the Western Wall in Tel Aviv (Updated)

Recently, we posted on a Daily Mirror article about the Munich Massacre which astonishingly referred to the murdered Israeli athletes as “terrorists”. Editors quickly corrected the error after we tweeted the journalist responsible for the mistake.

Today, we found another curious error at the British tabloid in a celebrity article, published on Dec. 31, about a recent visit to Israel by reality TV star Jonathan Cheban.

The Western Wall, part of the retaining wall of the Temple Mount complex, is of course in Jerusalem. Additionally, Rabbai [sic] Shmuel Rabinowitz is the chief rabbi of the Western Wall and holy sites, and their meeting occurred in Jerusalem as well, not in Tel Aviv.

We’ve tweeted the journalist responsible for the error in hopes that place the Jewish holy site back safely in Israel’s capital. 

UPDATE: The Daily Mirror journalist responded to our tweet and corrected the error.
