BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – JULY 2020

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during July 2020 shows that throughout the month a total of 94 incidents took place: 70 in Judea & Samaria, 22 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and two in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria and Jerusalem the agency recorded 61 attacks with petrol bombs, fourteen attacks using pipe bombs, two shooting attacks and fifteen arson attacks. In the Gaza Strip sector two rocket attacks were recorded.

No injuries or fatalities were sustained during July.

The BBC News website did not report any of the attacks which took place in July, including two rocket attacks involving three missiles on July 5th which were known to at least one of the BBC’s Jerusalem-based correspondents.

Since the beginning of the year visitors to the BBC News website have seen coverage of 5.6% of the terror attacks against Israelis which actually took place and no reporting of the one fatality. BBC coverage of rocket attacks launched from the Gaza Strip in 2020 stands at 13.6% as of the end of July. Six of the first seven months of 2020 saw no BBC reporting on Palestinian terrorism at all.
