Late on March 1st another missile launched from the Gaza Strip exploded in Israeli territory.
“A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip struck an open field south of the coastal city of Ashkelon on Wednesday night, causing neither injury nor damage, the army said, the second attack in a week. […]
The projectile struck the Hof Ashkelon region shortly after 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the Israel Defense Forces said.
Israeli troops began searching the area to locate the rocket, the army said.
No terrorist groups immediately took credit for the attack.
There were also no immediate reports of IDF retaliation.”
At least one locally based BBC employee was aware that an attack had taken place.
Nevertheless, there was no coverage of the attack on the BBC News website.
Since the beginning of the year five missile attacks against Israel have taken place – three from Gaza and two from Sinai – none of which have been reported by the BBC’s English language services. Throughout 2016 just one of ten attacks received BBC coverage in English.
