BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – OCTOBER 2021

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during October 2021 shows that throughout the month a total of 159 incidents took place: 126 in Judea & Samaria and 33 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’. No attacks were recorded in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria, Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ the agency recorded 124 attacks with petrol bombs, eleven attacks using pipe bombs, one stabbing attack, five shooting attacks, 17 arson attacks and one vehicular attack.

One member of the security forces was seriously injured in a vehicular attack near Qalandiya checkpoint on October 14th.

Neither that attack nor any of the others that took place during October received any BBC News website coverage, meaning that half of the first ten months of 2021 saw no reporting on the topic of Palestinian terrorism on the platform described by the corporation as ‘permanent public record’.
