Attempted terror attacks not news for the BBC

On the evening of Friday August 30th an explosive device was detonated near an Israeli army patrol jeep on the border with the Gaza Strip. No injuries were sustained.

“An IDF Spokesman said that the explosive device was likely detonated by a terrorist group while the army force took part in routine patrol activities.”

On the morning of Monday September 2nd two more explosive devices were detonated near an IDF patrol along the same border, fortunately with no injuries caused.

On Sunday, September 1st the Israeli security services announced that a plan to carry out a terror attack in the Mamilla shopping mall in Jerusalem had been foiled????????????????????????????????????????????

“…the Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office filed an indictment with the District Court against two individuals involved in the plot: Ahmad Rishak, 23, from Shuafat, and Ismail Abu Mfalfal, 27, from Abu Dis.

Both were charged with conspiracy to aid an enemy during war and attempted manufacturing of a weapon.

They and other alleged Hamas members from Ramallah and Jerusalem were in advanced planning stages in the terror plot and were led by Hamdi Romana, 22, of Ramallah, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) said. The intended target was the Mamilla open mall in downtown Jerusalem during one of the upcoming High Holy Days and festivals.”

None of the above is apparently considered newsworthy by the BBC.
