Kan News is apologizing after reporting that the man documented as the millionth Israeli to get the coronavirus vaccine, who had a photo op with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, had in the past been convicted in a killing.
It says the report on Muhammad Abd al-Wahhab Jabarin was a mistake, despite using trusted sources. “We apologize from the bottom of our heart.”
Kan says Jabarin did serve 14 years for severe offenses, on which it does not elaborate.
Jabarin himself has admitted to serving 14 years in prison but had denied the Kan report that he had killed anyone.
