BBC coverage of Nakba day demontrations

The BBC failed in its online coverage, on 6 July 2011, to fully explain the recent UN report focusing on the Nakba day demonstrations along the Israeli/Lebanese border. The report criticises both the Israeli army and the Palestinian demonstrators during this episode, and notes that it was the Palestinian demonstrators who ‘initiated the trouble, were first to use violence, and violated UN Security Council Resolution 1701’

BBC online coverage, however, focuses on the actions of the Israeli army and fails to mention any of the report’s criticism of the Palestinian protestors.
