The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks during March 2023 shows that throughout the month a total of 206 incidents took place: 183 in Judea & Samaria, 20 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and three in the Gaza Strip sector.
In Judea & Samaria, Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ the agency recorded 140 attacks with petrol bombs, 38 attacks using pipe bombs, 18 shooting attacks, three arson attacks and two stabbing attacks. In the Gaza Strip sector two incidents of rocket fire and one attack using an IED were recorded.
One civilian was murdered and eight people were wounded in attacks during March.
One civilian was wounded in a drive-by shooting attack near Beit Hagai on March 3rd which did not receive any BBC News website coverage.
To summarise, just three of the 206 terror attacks which occurred during March were mentioned in BBC News website reports (two of which were about different topics) and that did not include the fatal attack in Tel Aviv.
Throughout the first quarter of 2023 the BBC News website reported 1.98% of the terror attacks which actually took place and 87% of the resulting fatalities.
With regard to BBC News website coverage of Israeli counter-terrorism operations, the corporation’s reporting continues to fail to adequately inform audiences how many of the Palestinian casualties were members of terrorist organisations and/or males involved in violence at the time.
Of the twenty-six Palestinian or Israeli Arab casualties during March, eight were killed while carrying out, or following, terror attacks. At least nineteen were affiliated with terrorist organisations.
