Another missile attack on Israeli civilians ignored by the BBC

Early on the morning of Monday October 28th, residents in south west Israel were awoken by the sound of the air-raid siren warning them of incoming missiles from the Gaza Strip. 

One missile was intercepted by the Iron Dome defence system above the city of Ashkelon – home to some 120,000 residents – and a second one fell in the Hof Ashkelon area, luckily causing no injuries.

In response to the missile fire, the Israeli Airforce targeted two launching sites in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Once again, BBC audiences were not informed of these latest attacks on Israeli civilians.
