BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – OCTOBER 2020

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during October 2020 shows that throughout the month a total of 124 incidents took place: 82 in Judea & Samaria, 35 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and seven in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria and Jerusalem the agency recorded 95 attacks with petrol bombs, fourteen attacks using pipe bombs, six arson attacks, one stabbing and one shooting attack. In the Gaza Strip sector two attacks with petrol bombs, one grenade attack and four separate incidents of rocket attacks (during which 5 missiles were launched) were recorded.

Two members of the security forces were wounded in a pipe bomb attack on October 14th. Neither that nor any of the other incidents that took place throughout the month were reported on the BBC News website.

Rocket attacks launched from the Gaza Strip on October 5th, October 16th, October 20th and October 22nd did not receive any coverage whatsoever and the discovery of a Hamas cross-border tunnel near Kibbutz Kissufim was also not reported.

Since the beginning of the year visitors to the BBC News website have seen coverage of 4.8% of the terror attacks against Israelis which actually took place and reporting of 50% of the resulting fatalities. Seven of the first ten months of 2020 saw no BBC reporting on Palestinian terrorism at all.

  • The BBC reports just enough Palestinian attacks to be able, if challenged, to claim its impartiality as a news provider. It’s all part of their carefully contrived plan to enable “the person in the street” and left-wing media to say that that they “cannot see how the BBC is biased against Israel”. Makes me want to puke.
