Reuters Changes Nationality of Courageous Teacher

Reuters have a story about a palestinian Arab teacher who has overcome her dwarfism to inspire her students.

Except she is not a palestinian Arab – she is an Israeli Arab.

How do I know this? The video actually mention the school she works for is in Israel:

and we see other evidence of that too:

Ilut is an Arab-Israel town near Nazareth. And we can assume the teacher is from there, or a neighboring Israeli town, given the report mentions she has returned to her old school.

So why is Reuters referring to her as a Palestinian? I think we can all fathom a guess.
