Lancet editor comes to Israel and apologizes
You might recall that last summer, the Lancet
published a scathing smear of the IDF's actions in Gaza, and then refused to publish any responses
. Eventually, they published some small and inadequate responses
. Now, the editor of the Lancet
has come to Israel and invited Israeli medical professionals to tell their story alongside the 'Palestinians
Dr. Richard Horton made a statement Thursday
during Grand Rounds at the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, which he
visited earlier in the week.
Horton reportedly said during his statement
that he “deeply, deeply regrets” publishing the letter to the people of
Gaza in The Lancet during this summer’s conflict in Gaza between Israel
and Hamas. Several dozen physicians from the West signed the letter,
which also accused Israel of “cruel” and “vicious war crimes.”
Physicians, researchers and Israeli officials decried the letter.
