A new BBC correspondent in Jerusalem

The BBC's new Middle East correspondent will apparently be here for 'a couple of months'.

Those following and monitoring the BBC’s Middle East reporting will be interested to know of a new arrival in that part of the world. Anna Foster – previously at BBC radio 5 live – will apparently be covering the region for “a couple of months”.

With Anna Foster having reported on air-raid sirens and shelters in South Korea in 2017, perhaps BBC audiences will finally see some similar reporting about the area of Israel just ninety minutes’ drive away from the corporation’s Jerusalem office that has seen thousands of rocket and mortar attacks over the past two decades, including nine separate incidents since mid-January – all of which have been completely ignored by the BBC.
