We noticed a significant omission in a March 23rd report at the Evening Standard, on the sentencing of Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi for assaulting an Israeli soldier outside her West Bank home late last year, which we pointed in a tweet to the journalist.
Your report on Tamimi @EveningStandard https://t.co/ns8vJ9yH4j omits fact that her 8 month sentence will be reduced by 3 months for time served. @Independent report noted this fact https://t.co/O5bscrOh6A
I hope this info can be added to your article.

We contacted editors, who upheld our complaint and amended the passage to note that Tamimi will be released in five months to take into account time served.
A Palestinian teenage protester has been sentenced to eight months in prison for slapping and kicking a pair of Israeli soldiers outside her West Bank home.
Ahed Tamimi, 17, accepted the sentence as part of a plea bargain following a case which has sparked uproar in the Middle East and attracted international attention. Taking into account time already served, she will remain in prison for a further 5 months.
