BBC Ignores Palestinian Stabbings of Israeli Senior Citizens
On the morning of November 2, a terrorist and an accomplice tried to stab an Israeli soldier at the Jalame (Gilboa) crossing north of Jenin. On that same day, five Palestinians from Hebron were arrested when an IED was found in the vehicle in which they were travelling.
“Two people — a man in his 40s and a woman in her 80s — were in serious condition,” the Magen David Adom rescue service said. The third victim, 26, was lightly hurt.
The attacker, identified by authorities as a 19-year-old Palestinian man from Hebron, stabbed the 40-year-old man from behind on a bus on Tarmab Street, got off the bus, and ran to the adjacent Herzl Street, where he stabbed the elderly woman and the young man.

In the early evening of the same day, another senior citizen was stabbed by a terrorist in Netanya.
An Israeli man, 71, was very seriously wounded in a stabbing attack in Netanya early Monday evening.
Witnesses said the victim bled profusely from a single stab wound. He was evacuated by Magen David Adom paramedics to the city’s Laniado Hospital.
The attacker was confirmed by police as a 23-year-old Palestinian from the West Bank city of Tulkarem, which lies just ten miles east of Netanya. He was shot by a police officer, reportedly while attempting to flee the scene.
None of those incidents received any coverage whatsoever on the BBC News website.
