Correction (February 12, 2016): In an HRC blog post on July 17, 2014, we reported that then Globe and Mail Mideast Bureau Chief Patrick Martin had witnessed several Palestinian rockets being launched near a UN school in Gaza. Several weeks later, we published an HRC blog post which asked rhetorically “one wonders when specifically they (reporter Martin and CBC reporter Derek Stoffel had) witnessed this rocket-fire and why their statement’s only came out mid-ceasefire?” In fact, as we had earlier reported, Globe and Mail journalist Patrick Martin had reported on this matter on July 17, 2014.
