UK Media Watch prompts Telegraph revision to 2014 story on killing of Gaza family

We recently posted about an attack, during the summer 2014 war, on a Gaza home which killed nearly a dozen members of the Siyyam family in light of a new IDF Military Attorney General (MAG) report which concluded that the family was NOT in fact killed by an IDF aerial attack. The MAG report concluded that an errant Hamas rocket was likely to blame.

We recently posted about an attack, during the summer 2014 war, on a Gaza home which killed nearly a dozen members of the Siyyam family in light of a new IDF Military Attorney General (MAG) report which concluded that the family was NOT killed by the IDF.  The MAG report concluded that an errant Hamas rocket was likely to blame. 

We noted that reports in the Guardian and Telegraph shortly after the incident both blamed Israel for the attack.

Though both publications reported within the past few days on the conclusions of the new MAG report, neither updated their original stories to acknowledge this new information.

Following our communication with the Telegraph, however, they agreed to add the following addendum to their July 21, 2014 article:

We thank Telegraph editors for the addendum.
