BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – JUNE 2020

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during June 2020 shows that throughout the month a total of 95 incidents took place: 69 in Judea & Samaria, 22 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and four in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria and Jerusalem the agency recorded 70 attacks with petrol bombs, four attacks using pipe bombs, twelve arson attacks, two stabbing attacks, two shooting attacks and one vehicular attack. In the Gaza Strip sector four rocket attacks were recorded.

Three members of the security forces were injured throughout June: one in a vehicular attack in Bethlehem on June 15th and two during a stabbing attack at the Qalandiya checkpoint on June 27th.

The BBC News website did not report any of the attacks which took place during June, including the rocket attacks launched from the Gaza Strip on June 15th and June 26th, the first of which at least was known to one BBC Jerusalem bureau correspondent.

Since the beginning of the year visitors to the BBC News website have seen coverage of 6.15% of the terror attacks against Israelis which actually took place and no reporting of the one fatality. Five of the first six months of 2020 saw no BBC reporting on Palestinian terrorism at all.
