BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – MAY 2022

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during May 2022 shows that throughout the month a total of 207 incidents took place: 171 in Judea & Samaria and 37 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’. No incidents were recorded in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria, Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ the agency recorded 145 attacks with petrol bombs, 30 attacks using pipe bombs, twelve shooting attacks, thirteen arson attacks, three stabbing attacks and one incident of rock throwing.

Four people were killed and six wounded in attacks that took place during May.

The May 5th attack in Elad in which three civilians were murdered and two injured was reported by the BBC News website:

The death of a member of the security forces in Burqin on May 13th did not receive any BBC coverage and neither did the stabbing of a police officer at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. The injury of a father and his two children in a rock-throwing attack on May 24th was also not reported.

In the first five months of 2022, the BBC News website reported 1.2% of the terror attacks which actually took place and 89% of the resulting fatalities.

    I think even regular daily readers and viewers here in the U.S. of the U.S.-based mass media across the board, “tout court” – have almost zero exposure to these incidents in the news coverage, and definitely not as an ongoing pattern.
    Whether that is similar in the U.K. I don’t know, are there any media outlets with national scope that are any better than what’s documented in this post?
