What Is Missing From Your ABC

The ABC's Middle East Conflict section of its website is decidedly bare at the moment, so in case you think nothing is happening, this Jerusalem Post article will bring you up to date:

A 4-year-old boy caught in the crossfire of a shootout between Fatah and Hamas forces died of his wounds Friday, while a pro-Fatah security man was abducted and killed, Palestinian security officials said, raising tensions between the sides just days after the formation of their unity government.


Late Friday, the bullet-riddled body of a pro-Fatah security man was found outside the home of a Hamas family, hours after he was kidnapped by unknown assailants, security officials said. The whereabouts of a second man kidnapped with him were unknown, the officials said.


On Thursday, a Gaza man was killed during a showdown between his Fatah-affiliated family and members of a Hamas militia. Earlier in the week, a 24-year-old Fatah man was killed in an armed clash between Fatah and Hamas supporters.

On Wednesday evening, an Islamic University lecturer affiliated with Hamas was kidnapped by gunmen in the Gaza Strip.

Why is this not reported by the ABC?
