BBC News ignores rocket fire at school children

On the afternoon of January 15th residents of three communities close to the border with the Gaza Strip were forced to run for cover as warning sirens sounded.

“Four rockets were fired in total and the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted two of the projectiles, the army said. […]

The sirens sounded in Kibbutz Nahal Oz, Kibbutz Sa’ad and Kfar Aza, which are all within a short distance of the Gaza border.

The strikes took place as local children were disembarking from buses at the end of the school day.

“They ran to the bomb shelters, and acted perfectly,” local residents said.”

The IDF later responded with strikes on Hamas infrastructure.

BBC News did not find that attack newsworthy and the re-emergence of attacks using incendiary balloons over the past few days has likewise been ignored.

  1. BBC World Service is obviously fully engaged in trying to find and say good things about Iran – and the Gaza conflict has been put on the back burner.

  2. Well the BBC are not able to blame Israel for yet another unprovoked attack by cowardly Palestinian terrorists on Israeli citizens, this is exactly the method of BDS the BBC use, reporting by omission. The sooner somebody takes responsibility for this organisation and tackles this blatant bias the better.
