23-Nov-14: Partial reporting from the lethal Gaza border

The BBC has a major story to tell at this hour:

A cold-blooded attempt by trigger-happy IDF soldiers to raise the body count? Maybe. But why does the BBC not also report the additional, highly relevant bit that Israeli news channels have been reporting since early this morning?  That two Palestinian Arabs — one armed with a grenade — were detained near the Kerem Shalom crossing (on the Israel/Gaza border) after infiltrating into Israeli territory just a short time before.

Times of Israel knows it. The Jerusalem Post knows it. For crying out loud, even the Palestinian Maan News Agency knows it.

But the BBC makes no mention of it at all.
