BBC Watch helps secure media correction in Canada

Honest Reporting Canada informs us that a BBC Watch article of April 30th aided the securing of an on-air correction to a report by CBC which – in a similar manner to the BBC report addressed in that item – mistakenly gave impression was given that terror attacks on Israelis in Judea & Samaria are a rare event. מצפה יריחו‎‎.

We are, of course, glad to have been of help. 

Similarly, two incidents on the evening of Thursday, May 2nd went unreported by the BBC. Two mortars were fired from the Gaza Strip at communities in the Eshkol Regional Council and in a separate event shots were fired at an Israeli and a tourist hiking in the area between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, near Mitzpe Yericho. 

The day before – May 1st – was not particularly peaceful either.
