Palestinian academics and journalist in the Gaza Strip called for a boycott of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) for its biased coverage of the Israeli occupation war on Gaza.
The academics and journalists held a picket on Thursday afternoon outside the Shawwa Husary Towers in Gaza City, where the BBC has an office and called for a complete boycott of the BBC, not only for its biased coverage of the war on Gaza but also for its refusal to broadcast a humanitarian appeal for the victims of Gaza.
The angry protesters called on the three BBC journalists in Gaza to leave, before they get chased with the shoes of the victims of the Israeli occupation war on Gaza.
Dr. Jamal Abu Nada, chairman of the Academics and Lecturers Society, talked about the BBC"s reporting of war on Gaza and how its "reporters prepared their reporters on the backs of Zionist tanks with the Ja"vati units and adopted the Zionist false narrative to justify the war crimes against Palestinian women and children."
