Reporting Israel's reaction first

The BBC report thus:
'Israel attacks Syrian army sites after Golan bombing

Israel says it has attacked several Syrian military sites in retaliation for a bombing that wounded four of its troops in the occupied Golan Heights.

Among the targets were a headquarters, a training facility and artillery batteries, the Israeli military said.

The Syrian army had "aided and abetted" the attack on a patrol near the ceasefire line on Tuesday, it added.

There has been no comment yet on the air strikes from Syria and it is not clear if there were any casualties.'
So far as I am aware the BBC did not report the Syrian shelling of Israeli military sites until the Israelis retaliated. I suppose if your anti-Israel rather than an unbiased news organisation why would you?
