BBC News attempts to pass Palestinian militant deaths off as civilian deaths

In 'Israel to step up Gaza shelling', one can read the following:
She was the 16th Palestinian to die in Israeli air and artillery attacks on Gaza in the past four days.
A sentence much like the following (from memory) was removed from the article:
Israel says it will step up Gaza shelling despite the deaths of 16 Palestinians in the past four days.
The bias by omission is nothing less than outraging: BBC News wishes to have the reader believe that the 16 Palestinians killed were civilians, quite obviously, or it would state that of those 16 killed, 13 were militants:
I feel sorry for those who have to pay for this “news” service.

Why do the unemployed Palestinians stay living in a battle zone?

I think it is interesting that the BBC never explore what is going on in Mexico. It's citizens choose to live illegally in the US under these conditions. Why? What is going on in that country? I guess we will never know. (At least as long as we listen to the BBC.)
