BBC inaccuracy on Israel expands beyond the Arab conflict.

Enter, 2022 Ukraine war.

Israel has been fast to supply aid to Ukraine. By Apr 13, 2022, it has sent 220 tons of humanitarian aid to Ukraine – the largest amount sent by any country except the U.S. Israel has also built a large field hospital inside Ukraine, run by Israeli medical personnel. Israel has welcomed tens of thousands of Ukrainian refugees into Israel, including 25,000 non-Jews.
Yet, despite all this, some in the media continue to paint Israel as an ally of Vladimir Putin, "taking Russia's side" and refusing to condemn its atrocities.

A report on this attempt to sully Israel's image at BBC:

Akiva Van Koningsveld, "Note to the Media: Israel Is Not a Russian 'Ally' in the War Against Ukraine", Algemeiner, April 8, 2022.

[https://www.algemeiner.com/2022/04/08/note-to-the-media-israel-is-not-a-russian-ally-in-the-war-against-ukraine/]

Even as Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid this week charged Russian forces with war crimes following the apparent massacre in the Ukrainian city of Bucha, media outlets continue to manipulate their audiences into thinking that the Jewish state has turned a blind eye to Moscow's reported atrocities.

For instance, during the BBC's April 6 evening news broadcast, Clive Myrie, reporting from Kyiv, depicted Israel as a Russian "ally" in the war against Ukraine, akin to India.

The BBC like others, know the delicate path Israel walks not to hinder its operations against genocidal Iran and via its Hezbollah in Syria.
