Guardian Corrects -- Modi'in Not a Settlement

Earlier we noted that an article by Rachel Shabi in the Guardian incorrectly referred to Modi'in, a city in central Israel close to the Green Line, as a "settlement." In response to reader feedback, including from many Modi'in residents who were surprised to learn about the new status of their city, the Guardian has since run an online correction:

This article was amended on Tuesday 29 December 2009 to correct an error introduced in the editing process: Modi'in is not a settlement. Also, an editing change removed the information that the shooting of an Israeli in his car near Shavei Shomron was fatal. This has been corrected.

This correction marks the second Guardian correction concerning Israel in as many weeks.
