BBC News website ignores fatal terror attack in Ariel

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:

BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – DECEMBER 2021 & YEAR END SUMMARY

As of the end of March 2022, the website had reported all eleven fatalities since the beginning of the year and in April it reported the three additional murders in the shooting attack in Tel Aviv.

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”.

    Well they do not want the world to know that Palestinian terrorists daily, go around murdering Israelis whether Jews , Druze or Arab because it is a poor reflection on the Islamic revolution that the BBC news team team staff so wholeheartedly support. #defundthebbc
