Dutch newspaper captions Iron Dome as "firing rockets into Gaza" (updated x2)

If you think that media bias against Israel is bad in English-language media, check this out from the Dutch Volkskrant.nl site:

The caption translates to "A rocket fired from Israel to the Gaza Strip."

This is the Iron Dome system, where rockets are fired to destroy incoming Grad rockets from the Gaza Strip!

UPDATE: The caption was corrected to "An Israeli Iron Dome rocket is fired to intercept an incoming rocket from Gaza."

UPDATE 2: The Times of London did the exact same thing.
