Fatal terror attack in Judea – BBC silent

On April 14th – the eve of Pessah – as Israelis travelled to join family for the traditional holiday meal, a terror attack took place on Route 35 near the Tarqumiya checkpoint when several vehicles travelling along that road were attacked by a gunman with an automatic weapon. One man died at the scene and a pregnant woman and a child were injured.Route 35

“An Israeli man was killed and a woman and child were wounded Monday evening, when Palestinian gunmen opened fire on Israeli cars near the West Bank city of Hebron. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the people were members of the same family, travelling to a Passover Seder.

The 40-year-old man was critically hurt in the attack and received CPR at the scene, but succumbed his wounds. Two other people were wounded – his 28-year-old wife, who was moderately hurt, and a nine-year-old boy who sustained light wounds.”

Whilst terrorist organisations have already praised the attack, no group has to date claimed responsibility.

“A Hamas spokesman called the shooting “heroic” on his Facebook page.

Islamic Jihad called the attack “a natural reaction to the crimes of the occupation and settlers against our people in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.” “

Israeli security forces are still searching the area.

At least one BBC journalist is aware of the fact that a fatal terror attack took place.

  1. It’s called the Shylock syndrome. The BBC is infestated with this condition! Its rabid in that organisation.

    The Balen Report allegedly exposes this, but this monolith refuses to publish it under its cosy,self protection agreement with the FOI commission of derogation in terms of art, literature and journalism. Its unclear why a report costing in excess of a reported £300,000 of stakeholders’ money has anything to do with art, literature or journalism.

    So the BBC would rather the public didn’t know about anything Jewish that could detract from its inherent and institutional racist Shylock syndrome.

  3. Imagine if an Israeli had chosen one of the holiest days on the Islamic calendar to launch a murderous attack on a civilian Palestinian family.

    The BBC would have been all over the story.

    Yet when the reverse happens they are silent. They really are beneath contempt.

  4. Yes, the BBC had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, to even respond to complaints about their lack of coverage of the Fogel family massacre.
