BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – MARCH 2021

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during March 2021 shows that throughout the month a total of 70 incidents took place: 57 in Judea & Samaria, 11 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and two in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria and Jerusalem the agency recorded 52 attacks with petrol bombs, four attacks using pipe bombs, one rock-throwing attack, two stabbing/assault attacks, three shooting attacks, five arson attacks and one vehicular attack. In the Gaza Strip sector one rocket attack and one IED attack took place.

No deaths or injuries were reported throughout the month.

Visitors to the BBC News website during March saw just one brief reference to the rocket attack launched from the Gaza Strip on the day of Israel’s general election. The article in which that attack was reported appeared on the website’s ‘Middle East’ page for approximately two hours. None of the additional attacks throughout the month received any BBC coverage.

Throughout the first quarter of 2021 the BBC News website has reported just one of four rocket attacks launched from the Gaza Strip and 0.34% of the total terrorism incidents.

    I don’t understand why the BBC is so anti Israel I do understand that Israel like all countries is far from perfect and there is plenty to criticize but why so uneven in their reporting ? Still anti Semitic after all these years. Shameful
