Below is the BBC Report about the woman who was killed in a terrorist rocket attack on Sderot last night. Notice the subtle bias. The woman’s name is missing (her name is Faina Slutzker and her picture is to the right) once again in an attempt to dehumanize her. The report also says she (Faina Sluzker) lives near Gaza implying that she was part of an occupying force. That part of Israel is so small EVERYTHING is near Gaza, but maybe the BBC editors don’t own a map. More likely they have purchased their maps from Arab sources. Those maps do not have Israel on them.

Bio and Picture from Israelly Cool

Faina Slotzker, was a real human being not the faceless nameless “woman killed” as reported in the press . She was 57, when she was killed Wednesday morning after being hit by shrapnel from a rocket that landed in Sderot. Fatima is survived by a husband, Michael, and two children.

Sderot’s residents have borne the brunt of Qassam missile attacks

An Israeli woman has been killed and one man injured in a Palestinian rocket attack on the town of Sderot, Israeli officials say.
Police say six rockets fell in and around Sderot, close to the border with Gaza in southern Israel.
The Israeli army has been carrying out raids in Gaza intended to stop such rocket attacks.
Last week 19 Palestinian civilians were killed in Beit Hanoun, in an Israeli strike blamed on a technical failure.
A man in his 20s was also seriously wounded in the strike on the town, whose western edge lies less than a kilometre from the Gaza border.

The 57-year-old woman was taken to Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon, but she died from her wounds, medical officials said.
There have been several claims of responsibility, including one from the armed wing of the governing Hamas militant group. It said the attack was a response to the deaths in Beit Hanoun.
“These organisations will pay a heavy price,” said Israeli Defence Minister Amir Peretz.
“We will move against those who are involved in the firing of rockets, starting from their leaders and down to the last of their terrorists.”
Sderot is Mr Peretz’s home town and the injured man is a member of a private security firm that guards his residence there.

I like the way Aussie Dave of Israelly Cool put it:

An Israeli woman has been killed, and an Israeli man has lost his legs, after palestinian terrorists fired Kassams at civilians in Sderot. The international community is in uproar, and a special UN Security Council resolution condemning the terrorist’s targeting of innocent civilians has been drafted.
Faina Slotzker, 57, was killed Wednesday morning after being hit by shrapnel from a rocket that landed in Sderot. Fatima is survived by a husband, Michael, and two children.

The couple immigrated to Israel in 2003 to join their daughter and her husband who made aliyah before them and were already living in Sderot.

Faina and her husband live in the Neve Eshkol neighborhood in town. at the time of the attack, Faina was making her way to the town’s center, while Michael was headed for the local HMO branch. Shortly after they parted, Michael heard the explosion, and later learned that his wife was hurt in the attack.
