Ha'aretz outdoes itself

In the middle of an otherwise fairly straightforward news article about Israel releasing female prisoners, Ha'aretz illustrates the story - and captions the photo - this way:

UPDATE 2: Apparently, the first version was the illustration to the ridiculous Alon Idan article in October. Ha'aretz simply grabbed the graphic and caption for use in this article.

Interestingly, when they changed it, that same caption changed in the original article as well - so now an article written a few days after the swap has a caption saying "last month." I guess Ha'aretz' database of photos is hard-coded with their captions. (h/t StamEhad in the comments)
