If The New York Post was my newspaper, I’d fire a salvo of complaints to every writer, proofreader, and editor whose fingerprints were on a story about the weekend’s Gaza rocket fire.

According to this report, Israel has enjoyed a respite from Palestinian rocket fire since 2014.

Residents of southern Israel, who have been under constant rocket fire, would beg to differ. In fact, they could just point to the Post’s own coverage of other rocket attacks this past November, June, May, ad nauseam…

Update: After numerous attempts to contact the Post, the paper has now corrected this headline.
