The BBC website published a slideshow of images from the current conflict in Gaza. Two of them showed damage caused by Palestinian rockets. None showed the impact of Israeli missiles but after hunting around the BBC website I managed to find one. I also found one from ATP/Getty from the Daily Mail website.

This is what a Palestinian rocket looks like after it explodes. This one landed in a village near the “Israeli” city of Ashdod

And this is the damage these rockets can do – in this case, to a house near Ashdod

Image from ATP/Getty published on Daily Mail website in the story about the death of the 11 month old son of BBC journalist Jihad Masharawi (pictured below).

All of these rocket attacks constitute war crimes but why does the BBC only use the first two in its slideshow?
