Timeline: Israeli attacks in the occupied West Bank

Over the past year, Israeli forces have killed at least 380 Palestinians, including 90 children, according to the UN.

On April 9, residents of Jenin marked the 20th anniversary of a brutal Israeli assault on the city’s refugee camp that has since become a symbol of Palestinian resistance against Israeli occupation.

On the day of the anniversary, Israeli forces launched a large-scale raid on the camp, shooting dead a Palestinian man and wounding 13 others.

According to data collected by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), over the past year, Israeli forces have killed at least 380 Palestinians, including 90 children. This includes at least 260 Palestinians killed in Gaza during Israel’s latest assault that lasted from May 10 to May 21, 2021.
