Richard Tice blasts BBC as broadcaster faces backlash over Israel ‘disinformation’: ‘Unforgivable mistake!’

The BBC is under fire for an “unforgivable mistake” made in its coverage of the Israel-Hamas conflict.

It comes as the broadcaster was forced into a humiliating apology for incorrectly reporting that Israeli solders were “targeting medical teams and Arab speakers” in a raid on Gaza’s main hospital.


GB News host Richard Tice has lashed out at the BBC as a result during a discussion with broadcaster Jonathan Sacerdoti.

He added the BBC “shouldn’t be making those mistakes, they should be doing much better.”

Tice added they “shouldn’t get involved at all” should they continue to make mistakes.

As IDF forces stormed into Al-Shifa hospital, newsreader Monica Miller misquoted a report about the raid which the army says is a “targeted operation against Hamas”.

Speaking about the incident in Gaza, Miller misread the report made by Reuters news agency, telling viewers: “We are hearing from Reuters that Israel says its forces are carrying out an operation against Hamas in Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital.

“And they are targeting people including medical teams as well as Arab speakers.”

Speaking on GB News, Sacerdoti lashed out at the BBC’s gaffe, branding it a “blood libel”.

“The BBC is providing a great deal of misinformation on this war”, he said.

“It’s fooling the next generation who are bound to have warped views on this.

“To continually accuse the Jewish state of targeting hospitals is a blood libel.

“We are in a dangerous moment. A lot of people are swallowing the BBC’s line.”

In a statement posted to X, the BBC said: “as BBC News covered initial reports that Israeli forces had entered Gaza’s main hospital, we said that ‘medical teams and Arab speakers’ were being targeted.

“This was incorrect and misquoted a Reuters report. We should have said IDF forces included medical teams and Arabic speakers for this operation.

“We apologise for this error, which fell below our usual editorial standards. The correct version of events was broadcast minutes later and we apologised for the mistake on air later in the morning.”

The BBC faced backlash last month after a reporter speculated that a rocket hitting Gaza was an “Israeli air strike”, adding it was “hard to see” what else it could be.

The broadcaster was forced into an apology for the incident, adding it was wrong to speculate.
