Gaza Strip: what the BBC is not reporting

The BBC’s Jon Donnison was back in the Gaza Strip on December 23rd.

JD Gaza 2312

Despite that, there is no mention whatsoever on the BBC News website of any of the following incidents. 

On Friday, December 21st, a number of Gaza Strip residents were injured when they approached the border fence with Israel and refused to heed calls to leave or warning shots fired in the air. 

On Sunday, December 23rd, another incident occurred east of Dir al Balah in which two Gazans approached the border fence.  

Also on Sunday, the IDF reportedly arrested two Gazans who infiltrated the border fence and in addition, terrorists tried to fire a rocket into Israeli territory which fell short and landed inside the Gaza Strip. Another rocket reportedly fell in open ground near Ashkelon. 

These incidents and others which have taken place since November 21st of course represent breaches of the ceasefire which brought Operation ‘Pillar of Cloud’ to an end, but the BBC has failed consistently to report them to its audiences.  So far Israel has not responded but – as has been the case in the past – if and when an Israeli response does come, BBC audiences will have no idea of the events which brought it about.

        • Only the intellectually and morally impoverished cannot distinguish between a genocidal racist supremacist terror organization like Hamas, and a liberal democracy.

          • Dear Adam, this is a public forum, where everyone is welcome – provided you show respect to other people, even if they don’t agree with you.

            If you disagree with this basic rule, please go somewhere else.

        • So I assume you won’t care next time Israel launches a raid against Palestinian terrorists and it doesn’t get reported – not that it is likely to happen.

          What a charlatan you are.

          • Dear Adam, this is a public forum, where everyone is welcome – provided you show respect to other people, even if they don’t agree with you.

            If you disagree with this basic rule, please go somewhere else.

          • Stop spamming with your cut-n’-paste bromides, “Nat”.
            This is not a “public forum” — this is someone’s blog you’re trolling.
            Now scramble away, idiot.

          • Dear Commentary, this is a public forum, where everyone is welcome – provided you show respect to other people, even if they don’t agree with you.

            If you disagree with this basic rule, please post somewhere else.

          • Stop trolling, imbecile.
            Oh, and by the way, “Nat”, you’ve yet to answer: who’s paying for your spamming here?
            Do you get reimbursed per message, or per website?

          • Commentary, why so intolerant?

            Please come and visit Israel. This is the perfect place to learn about tolerance. The Jewish state managed to thrive despite the differences between the several Jewish communities who joined forces to build it. It actually thrived thanks to these differences, with everyone bringing something different to help make the dream come true.

            I wish you’d open your heart and stop being so aggressive with people who disagree with your views. You need to learn about the Israeli democracy, you need to learn about how people discuss and debate while respecting each other. This is important.

          • What you need to learn, disgusting troll, is how to stop spamming others’ sites.
            Now, I’m sure Ms. Sela can better manage her blog, and needs no counsel from me, but I would have sent you along on your merry way, ages ago, with a boot where “the sun don’t shine”.
            Still, the only way to counter mercenary shills like yourself, “Nat”, is to block you repeatedly, yielding not an inch.
            Say your prayers, “Nat”, you’re halfway gone.
