After Global News erroneously claimed that a Palestinian gunman killed two Israeli soldiers and injured a third, HonestReporting Canada filed a complaint and informed senior editors that the victims were all civilians and were not members of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
Global News commendably broadcast the following apology and on-air correction on live TV on October 14 which was stated by its anchor:
"Global News would like to correct information from a story we brought to you last week. Our reporting stated that two Israeli soldiers were killed and a third injured in an attack by a Palestinian gunman. The attack happened in an industrial park next to Barkan, a Jewish settlement in the occupied west bank. In fact, the victims were Israeli civilians, not soldiers. Global News regrets the error and apologizes for any confusion or concern that resulted from our reporting."
