Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians have been fluctuating for monthsamid late-night Israeli raids in the occupied West Bank sparked by a spate of deadly attacks on Israelis that killed 19 in the spring.

More than 130 Palestinians were killed in Israeli-Palestinian fighting in the West Bank and East Jerusalem this year, making 2022 the deadliest year since 2006. The Israeli army says most of the Palestinians killed were militants. But stone-throwing youth protesting the Israeli army’s invasion and others not involved in confrontations were also killed.
