BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – JULY 2022

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks during July 2022 shows that throughout the month a total of 135 incidents took place: 113 in Judea & Samaria, twenty in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and two in the Gaza Strip sector.

In Judea & Samaria, Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ the agency recorded 75 attacks with petrol bombs, 27 attacks using pipe bombs, fifteen shooting attacks, twelve arson attacks, one rock throwing (the ISA only records rock throwing incidents resulting in moderate and serious injuries) and two assaults (which includes stabbing/axe attacks). Two separate incidents of rocket fire were recorded in the Gaza Strip sector.

Three civilians were wounded in July. On July 5th a 47-year-old man was attacked and injured in Givat Shmuel. On July 15th a woman sustained serious fractures to her face in a rock-throwing attack on her car while travelling on Route 60. On July 19th a man was stabbed in the head on a bus in Jerusalem.

Visitors to the BBC News website saw no reporting on those three attacks or any of the others throughout the month of July. Two separate incidents of missile fire from the Gaza Strip, each involving two rockets, on July 16th likewise did not receive any BBC coverage.

In the first seven months of 2022 the BBC News website reported just 0.9% of the terror attacks against Israelis which actually took place and 89% of the resulting fatalities.
