As documented here previously, 2021 was the first year in which the BBC News website reported all the fatalities resulting from terror attacks against Israelis since 2016:
Late on Friday, April 29th another shooting attack took place in Ariel and a security guard was killed.
“Security camera footage from the scene showed a blue Suzuki vehicle driving up to a guard post, where a person in the passenger seat opened fire. The gunman and the driver then both got out and continued to fire into the guard post before driving off.
The Magen David Adom ambulance service said its medics declared the man dead at the scene.”
The victim was later named as 23-year-old Vyacheslav Golev and the two suspected perpetrators were subsequently arrested in the nearby town of Qarawat Bani Hassan. The attack – which was initially claimed by Fatah’s Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, although that was not confirmed – was lauded by Hamas and other terrorist organisations including Hizballah. Three days later Hamas’ Qassam brigades claimed responsibility for the attack, claiming that it was a ‘response’ to recent events on Temple Mount.
Well over 72 hours after that attack and despite the fact that at least one BBC journalist based in Israel is aware of it having taken place, BBC audiences have still not seen any mention of it whatsoever on the BBC News website despite the corporation’s previous ample portrayal of “tensions”.
