Palestine

Monthly Updates

November 2022

Cross-border violence was sparked this month as Gaza militants fired rockets into Israel for the first time since the ceasefire was implemented in August 2022. Palestinians experience persisting near-daily violence and raids by Israeli authorities, with numerous killings recorded in November.

September 2022

New law imposed by Israel tightens control in West Bank. The Israeli authorities released a wide-ranging policy imposing rules, reporting requirements, and restrictions for foreigners who want to enter Palestinian areas of the West Bank, extending its control of daily life and movement in and out of the occupied territory. The list of rules targets foreigners who marry Palestinians, travel to the West Bank to work, volunteer, study or teach. The rules do not apply to people visiting Israel or the more than 130 Jewish settlements scattered across the West Bank. The legislation effectively entrenches Israel’s 55-year control over the Palestinian population in the territory.

August 2022

Conflict broke out in August between Israel and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) in a war that lasted for three days before a ceasefire was agreed. According to the United Nations, 47 Palestinians were killed, including 12 PIJ fighters, and 360 people were injured. The Palestinian deaths included 15 children and four women, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza. Among those Palestinians wounded, 151 were children and 56 women.
