How to disappear a story Guardian style

Where do you think the following story was posted in the Guardian’s website?

How about under World News/Middle East/Gaza?

How about under World News/Middle East/Palestinian Territories?

How about under World News/Middle East/Israel?

How about in the World News section for May 16?

In fact, the story appears to be completely un-indexed. It more or less might as well not exist.
So what do we make of this? An honest mistake or an intentional attempt to conceal news that doesn’t quite fit the narrative?
Now I would normally brush off an instance like this and put it down to human error however this is the Guardian and as readers of CiF Watch know by now the editors of The Grauniad have a certain propensity for this kind of thing.
