BBC NEWS COVERAGE OF TERRORISM IN ISRAEL – JUNE 2023

The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks during June 2023 shows that throughout the month a total of 217 incidents took place: 178 in Judea & Samaria and 39 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 134 attacks with petrol bombs, 46 attacks using pipe bombs, sixteen shooting attacks, fourteen arson attacks, two vehicular attacks and one stabbing attack.

Seven Israelis were killed and fifteen wounded in attacks during June.

Three members of the security forces were killed and one injured in an attack near the border with Egypt on June 3rd which was reported on the BBC News website.

Four civilians were murdered and four wounded in a Hamas shooting attack near Eli on June 20th which was covered by the BBC.

Among the attacks which did not receive any coverage on the BBC News website were the following:

One soldier was wounded in a shooting attack near Nablus on June 2nd.

Two soldiers were injured in a vehicular attack in Huwara on June 5th and the following day a civilian motorist was wounded in a shooting attack near the same location.

Three soldiers and one civilian were wounded in shooting attacks at the Efes junction near Ya’bad on June 13th.

On June 19th two members of the security forces were injured in a vehicular attack near Shaked.

One civilian was wounded in a shooting attack at the Qalandiya checkpoint on June 24th.

Throughout the first half of 2023 the BBC News website reported 2.17% of the terror attacks which actually took place (not including Operation Shield and Arrow) and 89% of the fatalities.

With regard to BBC News website coverage of Israel’s 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.

Details of the Palestinian casualties since the beginning of the year can be found in our regularly updated resource on that topic.
