Posted September 08, 2018 02:02:03In recent years, Israeli settlers have occupied and bulldozed Palestinian homes, villages, and other properties in the West and East of the West bank.
The new wave of violence began in June 2017 when Israeli settlers attacked three Palestinians who were protesting the arrest of three settlers.
In response, Israeli authorities set up checkpoints and demolished hundreds of homes and other Palestinian structures in the occupied West Bank.
Many of the houses were demolished to make way for a road leading to Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights, but the protesters also damaged the Palestinian land.
Many Palestinian communities in the area have since been forced to abandon their homes, including several in Beit El.
On July 7, 2018, an Israeli settler opened fire on a Palestinian protester in Hebron, wounding him and two others.
Israeli settlers also attacked two Palestinian children, killing one.
The incident sparked protests in the region and worldwide.
Afterward, Israeli forces responded by destroying the homes and bulldozing several Palestinian structures.
Since then, the Palestinian community has been living in fear, fearing that settlers will come back to destroy them again.
The ongoing violence in the Gaza Strip and the West is a major reason why.
The Palestinian communities have lost everything and are living in poverty and fear, according to Palestinian rights groups.
The recent spate of violence has forced many to flee their homes and to avoid going to work, in a process that continues to increase the cost of living in the Strip.
In addition, many Palestinian women and children have also been forced into prostitution in order to survive.
According to the UN, there are approximately 200,000 Palestinians living in Gaza and some 70,000 people in the surrounding West Bank, who have been unable to get a job or a decent standard of living.
They are left with little money and little to eat.
In Gaza, Palestinians are forced to sell their possessions in order for the family to survive, or face arrest.
In the West, many Palestinians have been forced out of their homes due to the violence.
Since 2015, Israeli soldiers have killed over 300 Palestinians, mostly by shooting, and have demolished or confiscated hundreds of structures, including schools, homes, and mosques.
According a UN report, over 80 percent of the homes demolished or damaged by Israeli forces since 2014 have been in the Khan Younis refugee camp.
Some 70,812 Palestinians are internally displaced from the West out of an estimated 70 million Palestinians in the country.
Palestinians in Gaza have been living under a constant state of terror for decades.
The state of emergency declared in the late 1990s following the assassination of Yasser Arafat, the leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, has allowed Israeli forces to carry out regular and disproportionate attacks on Palestinian communities.
Since the end of the 2014 Israeli invasion of Gaza, more than 1,000 Palestinian children have been killed and more than 10,000 have been injured.
The Israeli military has also killed hundreds of Palestinians during Operation Protective Edge, an ongoing military campaign that began on August 8, 2017.
Israel has denied carrying out any of these attacks, but several videos have emerged that seem to indicate that the army has killed Palestinian children.
Israeli soldiers were filmed kicking and hitting Palestinian children in the head and neck.
A video that surfaced last year showed Israeli soldiers throwing tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at a Palestinian boy, who was in the process of running away from them.
The military also used live ammunition to disperse protesters in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat in the early morning hours of September 12, 2018.
As of September 20, 2018 there were 1,847 Palestinians dead, according the Palestinian Center for Human Rights.
The latest Israeli attack on the Gaza strip has resulted in the death of over 200 Palestinians.
In a series of attacks carried out in September, Israeli troops shot at a crowd of demonstrators, injuring dozens, and opened fire at a group of Palestinians who had gathered to protest against the demolition of a mosque in Khan Youni, near the Israeli border.
Several Palestinian children were among those killed in the attack, which occurred in the northern Gaza Strip.
The violence in Gaza has prompted a wide-ranging condemnation from international and Israeli leaders, including US President Donald Trump, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and US Vice President Mike Pence.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who has been under international pressure to end the violence, has also condemned the attacks.
On September 22, 2018 the UN Security Council voted unanimously in favor of an emergency resolution condemning the violence and calling on Israel to immediately halt its attacks on Gaza.
The resolution passed by a vote of 10-2, with two abstentions.
Palestinian leaders have called on the international community to condemn the Israeli attacks on Palestinians in their territory.
Israel’s military launched Operation Protective Emancipation on August 28, 2017, targeting the homes of two Israeli settlers, Hani Al-Hajjar and Naftali Fraenkel, and the homes belonging to Palestinian youth, the Al-
