Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's spokesman Mark Regev sent a letter to the Director of the BBC's Bureau in Israel, Paul Danahar on Thursday after the BBC Sport page refused to identify Israel's capital city as Jerusalem.

Until Wednesday afternoon, the page offering information about the Palestinian Olympic team referred to its capital as 'East Jerusalem', but the equivalent page for Israel made no mention of a capital city at all.



In the letter, Regev commented that he is "dismayed by the BBC's decision to discriminate against Israel".

The letter has been shared on Facebook over 400 times.
