The Electronic Intifada

Israeli occupation forces and settlers killed 24 Palestinians during March, all but one in the occupied West Bank. Additionally, a Palestinian man died from injuries sustained in February.

With three more killed since the beginning of April, a total of 94 Palestinians, including 17 children, have been killed by Israeli soldiers, police and armed civilians so far this year, or died from injuries sustained previously, according to The Electronic Intifada’s tracking.

There have been three times the number of Palestinian fatalities during the first quarter of 2023 than there were during the same period last year.

Sixteen Israelis or foreign nationals were killed by Palestinians in the context of the occupation, or died from injuries sustained previously, since the beginning of the year. Among them was a 32-year-old man who died on 20 March, nearly two weeks after he was shot in Tel Aviv by a Palestinian assailant on 9 March.

The shooter, Mutaz Salah al-Khawaja, was killed after two police officers and two armed civilians opened fire soon after he hit three people.

The Tel Aviv shooting was the only fatal Palestinian attack inside Israel so far this year; the rest occurred in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

The attack came later in the day after a deadly raid in Jaba near Jenin, a northern West Bank city that, along with nearby Nablus, has borne the brunt of Israel’s violence in the territory over the past year.
