Newspaper: "Israeli Deaths Go Largely Unnoticed"

August 6, 2006

An article in Israel’s Yediot Ahronoth newspaper asks whether the media’s failure to cover deaths in Israel is the result of media bias:

Victims"Hours after 60-year-old Fadia Jumaa and her two daughters, Samira, 31, and Sultana, 33, were killed by a Hizbullah rocket attack on their home in the Israeli-Bedouin village of Arab al-Aramshe, the international media has so far largely ignored their deaths.

Reuters was alone among non-Israeli media outlets to report the deaths, according to a Google news search, a number of hours after the first reports of the attack surfaced.

The lack of coverage of the Israeli civilian war casualties stands in marked contrast to the swift response by many sections of the international media to reported Lebanese casualties."
