Article: Gaza rocket hits city; Israeli airstrikes follow

Date: Saturday, July 31, 2010

This article is a factual report on a rocket attack on Ashkelon, followed by an Israeli strike at a terrorist training camp.

Omission: As usual, the article omitted any use of the terms "terror" or "terrorist" when referring to the terror attack.

Misleading. Omission: The article referred to Ashkelon as being "the Israeli city closest to the Gaza Strip." It omitted any reference to Sderot, which some also consider a city, which is closer and has been far from calm.
