The West Bank, a Palestinian territory, has been occupied since 1967 by Israel. Nearly three million Palestinians live there, like about 490,000 Israelis in settlements considered by the UN to be illegal under international law. These new deaths come against a backdrop of an outbreak of violence since the beginning of the year.

On Monday evening, an Israeli soldier was lightly injured in a car-ramming attack in Huwara, West Bank, according to the army, which said the vehicle had fled. Since the beginning of the year, at least 153 Palestinians, 20 Israelis, a Ukrainian and an Italian have been killed in violence linked to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. These statistics include, on the Palestinian side, combatants and civilians, including minors, and on the Israeli side, mostly civilians, including minors, and three members of the Arab minority.
