Missing Statistics?

CBC is reporting on the renewed fighting after the ceasefire talks ended.

It gives details of two Israelis that were slightly injured by Hamas rockets, and reports on a few of the killings of Palestinians by Israeli bombs.

However I understand from friends in Palestine, that up to 100 Palestinians have been killed by Israel since the ceasefire ended.

So where is this statistic: 100 killed by Israel versus 2 slightly injured by Hamas?

Are details about injuries to Israelis more relevant to CBC's readers than deaths of Palestinians? Probably, yes to all those who share CBC's racist perspective but not to most Canadians.
