Sayeth the BBC:

The Palestinian leadership responded by condemning all attacks on civilians. Senior negotiator Saeb Erekat said that in the six-week period in which there had been no suicide attacks, the Israeli army had killed 71 civilians, including the child killed on Thursday.

I think that number (71) is much much higher than the actual number (anyone feel like going through 6 weeks of Haaretz archives?). Erekat knows that he lie through his teeth and the BBC/CNN will just pass it on.
