At least four Palestinians were killed Saturday 25 and Sunday, September 26, 2021 by the Israeli army in the north of the occupied West Bank. Israeli media report violent clashes in the sector since Saturday night.

Hebron, Ramallah and Nablus ... It is around these cities of the West Bank that most anti-Palestinian incidents take place. They are, most often, the fact of young settlers and Israeli security forces do not react in most cases. A situation that has recently been debated by the Israeli secure establishment.

for the first half of 2021, no less than 416 attacks against Palestinians perpetrated by settlers have been identified. It's twice as much as for the same period the previous year and this exceeds the number of similar cases for all year 2019.

Israeli daily Haaretz borrows these numbers with a debate led in camera by managers of the Israeli security community. These are acts of vandalism and stone jet, but also physical attacks led directly by settlers against Palestinians who, too, have more than doubled in one year.

as well, 23 Palestinians were injured during the aggression during the first half of this year , against 8 in 2020 and 7 during the same period the previous year.

Always according to Haaretz, this net increase in cases of anti-Palestinian violence in the West Bank is the result of the laxity of the Israeli forces. An attitude installed after two incidents that have provoked violent reactions from young settlers: the murder of a resident of a settlement colony by Palestinians and the accidental death of a young colon in a lawsuit with the police.
