BBC Weather doesn't think Jerusalem is in Israel

From the BBC Weather site, on a search for Israel:

Hmmm. Anything missing?

Nah, only Israel's capital.

Let's click on Tel Aviv:

It shows three tabs, for the city, country and "pressure."

But if you type in Jerusalem you get:

No country.

According to the BBC Weather website, Jerusalem is not in Israel.

On the other hand, it does not recognize any Palestinian territories or cities, except for Gaza, which is also not in any country according to the site.
