  • CKUT Radio, Apr 8 2010: “Under the olive tree (Thursday April 8, 2010)”. Report falsely accused Israeli troops of killing 15 year-old Palestinian. First on-air clarification: “So we listened earlier to the IMEMC “This week in Palestine” report. Just to mention, two weeks ago, the first week of April, IMEMC reported, along with all the media outlets in the world, that a youth, a 15 year-old Palestinian from Gaza, Mr. al-Faramawi, was killed by Israeli state troops and, of course, that news item was incorrect. Most, if not all, media outlets corrected that later on when it appeared that the kid was lost in one of the tunnels and reappeared later on. So, that was just a correction for that mistake from IMEMC and all the media outlets out there.”

Second on-air clarification: “Just to repeat the correction we made earlier in the show, in the beginning of April, the first week, we played the IMEMC “This week in Palestine” which had an error that was made by all media outlets, almost, internationally, reported that a child, a 15 year-old child Mohammed al-Faramawi, was killed in Gaza by Israeli live ammunition. It appeared later on that Mr. al-Faramawi was lost in one of the tunnels that lead from Gaza to Egypt. So he is thankfully alive.”
