BBC yet again ignores tonight's multiple rocket attacks against Israel civilians

Just sent the following self-explanatory complaint to the BBC.
Several long range rockets were today fired from Gaza by Islamic State (and likely also Hamas) terrorists against Israeli civilians in Ashkelon and Sderot. Can you explain why this failed to gain a mention on any of the BBC News outlets?  It is not even mentioned on the BBC Middle East News section of the website - and it's not even a heavy news day (your current lead national story this evening is "Person on track accident at Twickenham", which just about beats "train arrives late into Waterloo I guess"), Are you simply waiting for Israel to respond before you report anything so that you can write your usual "Israel attacks Gaza" headline? Or are you simply following these Reporting Guidelines?

BBC waits for Israeli response, otherwise, how will they headline the article "Israel attacks Gaza after rockets"?
