Al Jazeera: Haifa in 'Northern Occupied Palestine'

Aug. 29 Update, 7:45 am EST: Al Jazeera English Corrects: Haifa Not in 'Northern Occupied Palestine'

In an Aug. 20 article, Al Jazeera English places the Israeli coastal city of Haifa in "northern occupied Palestine" ("UK: Palestine activists face prison over Elbit protest"). Shafik Mandhai redraws the map:

Based in the city of Haifa in northern occupied Palestine, Elbit produces military and civilian-use equipment, including drones, aircraft, weapon control systems, and artillery. (Emphasis added.)

This is a completely false characterization of Haifa. According to the United Nations (as well as an "Oslo status quo" map published by Al Jazeera) the Israeli northern coastal city of Haifa is not in the "Occupied Palestinian Territories," which include the Gaza Strip, West Bank, and by some definitions eastern Jerusalem.
