Israel changes birth-control policy for Ethiopian immigrants | The Times of IsraelWhile Gamzo stopped short of admitting any wrongdoing by the ministry, he did acknowledge the allegation that many women were given shots of the drug without fully understanding its effects... Last week, Gamzo wrote to the HMOs that, without “taking a position or determining any facts based on the allegations,” he instructed that doctors not renew Depo-Provera prescriptions for either Ethiopian women or those of any other nationality “if there is any concern that they do not understand the implications of the treatment.”
Israel admits Ethiopian women were given birth control shots Israel News | Haaretz Daily NewspaperGamzu’s letter instructs all gynecologists in the HMOs "not to renew prescriptions for Depo-Provera for women of Ethiopian origin if for any reason there is concern that they might not understand the ramifications of the treatment.”
See the headlines? Just the facts.
These cites have already offered in the string. So why wait for CNN or BBC, when the local media is bound to be more thorough?
Israel gave birth control to Ethiopian Jews without their consent - Middle East - World - The Independent
Granted, the two articles you mentioned will do to note of how minor the TV story is.
From the OP article:
Bold false.Israel has admitted for the first time that it has been giving Ethiopian Jewish immigrants birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent.
The government had previously denied the practice but the Israeli Health Ministry’s director-general has now ordered gynaecologists to stop administering the drugs.

Without the grand accusation (institutionalized discrimination and deception for sterilization) this story is mundane local news at most.
