(Razia Iqbal, 0:01:47) “Since September, at least 27 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli security forces, including women and teenagers” –
but of course the BBC makes no mention of the number of Israelis killed since September (except those killed today)
This is a slight departure from the recent BBC Newshour practice of only reporting today’s deaths on both sides – and of simply not reporting at al on those days when the Israeli deaths are most serious, thus giving regular listeners a false overall picture
