BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – JULY 2021

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during July 2021 shows that throughout the month a total of 142 incidents took place: 97 in Judea & Samaria, 44 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and one in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria, Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ the agency recorded 100 attacks with petrol bombs, seven attacks using pipe bombs, one stabbing attack, six shooting attacks and 27 arson attacks. In the Gaza Strip sector one incident of anti-aircraft fire took place.

Two members of the security forces were injured in July: one in a stabbing attack in the Jordan Valley on July 1st and one in a shooting attack at the Qalandiya checkpoint on July 13th.

Visitors to the BBC News website in July did not find coverage of those two incidents or any of the additional ones that took place throughout the month.

A report published on July 29th about an incident that took place the previous day – ‘Israel investigating shooting of Palestinian boy in West Bank’ – briefly mentions two earlier incidents in which Palestinians were killed by IDF fire. The second incident was described as follows:

“Earlier this week, in a separate incident, a 17-year-old boy from a different village died after he was shot by Israeli troops.”

BBC audiences were however not informed that the youth killed near Nabi Saleh was participating in violent rioting at the time.

Once again we see that the BBC for the most part ignores terrorism against Israelis which is not part of a major flare-up.
