BBC ignores Gaza border attack

Yesterday we reported on attacks on Israeli soldiers and civilians in the vicinity of the border with the Gaza Strip which the BBC chose to report by headlining the IDF response to those attacks. 

This morning, an IDF officer was critically wounded in another attack on a routine patrol near the border fence in the area near Kissufim. 

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) claimed responsibility for the attack.

As yet, there has been no response from the IDF.

There has also been no mention of the attack on the Middle East page of the BBC News website.

Could there be a connection between those two facts?

  1. I think Helen bowden head of the BBC NEWS should be told that over 100 rockets in the last few weeks plus casulties in Israel that the PLO & HAMAS have been attacking Israel . If she’s head of the BBC news god help the world talk about an enamy within the camp . Maybe should get the sack as well as everyone who has coverd up for jimmy savile the BBC they’ve coverd up so much about the real truth what the Arab world is doing to Israel and the BBC are covering up once again with there propaganda it makes me sick to the stamuck the truth one day will come out I hopeits not too late for Israel and the Jewish people and infadels across the world

  2. Maybe it was another case of ‘watertight oversight’ at the world’s most trusted news provider? Mind you, they do seem to respond variably depending on which sources they are informed by.

    Or, possibly, it was a ‘determination not to show an undue interest’, which is another selective BBC trait that appears to percolate from on high through to…. apparently now rather thinning, editorial levels.

    I do believe you are serious.
