The BBC has stepped in to dismiss claims that it pulled its Middle East editor from reporting on Gaza following a complaint by Israel.

Writing in the New Statesman magazine last month, Jeremy Bowen, a veteran broadcaster with 30 years of experience at the BBC, wrote that while reporting on the current conflict in Gaza he “saw no evidence” of Israel’s charge that Hamas uses Palestinians as human shields, an accusation that the country has used to defend its shelling of densely populated areas that has resulted in the death of more than 1,800 Palestinians, most of whom are civilians.
