i news corrects claim that filmed Jerusalem terror attack is only an ‘allegation’

Last week, we posted about an op-ed at i news by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown which included a myriad of distortions, including the following about a recent Jerusalem terror attack:

Last Sunday, a Palestinian man was reportedly shot dead by Israeli soldiers while he lay injured on the ground. Medics were not allowed to approach the man, who, the soldiers allege, had carried out a knife attack.

As we noted in our post, and in a complaint to i news editors, Border Police don’t merely “allege” that the Palestinian man, Muhammad Salima, carried out a potentially deadly knife attack, there’s a video to prove it.

Editors upheld our complaint, and revised the sentence accordingly:

Last weekend, a Palestinian man who had carried out a knife attack was shot dead by Israeli soldiers while he lay injured on the ground Medics were not allowed to approach the man.

The following addendum was added at the bottom:
