In Judea & Samaria and Jerusalem the agency recorded one hundred attacks with petrol bombs, nine attacks using improvised explosive devices, three shooting attacks and one vehicular attack. Also recorded were three separate incidents of missile fire from the Gaza Strip.

One civilian was murdered in a shooting attack near Havat Gilad on January 9th which was reported by the BBC. Three members of the security forces were wounded in attacks throughout the month: one in an IED attack on January 1st and two in a shooting attack on January 17th – neither of which was reported on the BBC News website.

  1. I couldn’t agree more. Such bias points to the BBC sharing the innate anti-semitism with the British establishment-but that is nothing new.
    I have given up watching the BBC news channel. If I want real international news, I have RT as the only option. The BBC ‘World Service’ is a bit of an exaggeration (and a sad joke). I dislike the hard right in Israel as much as many, more liberal and peace-seeking Israelis, but there is really no excuse for such consistent under-reporting of terror incidents aimed at Israeli civilians. But why change the habits of a life-time?(
