Since December 2022, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been sucked into a new spiral of violence with the entry into office of the government of Benjamin Netanyahu.
The northern West Bank, in particular the cities of Nablus and Jenin, is at the heart of this renewed violence.
According to an AFP count compiled from official Israeli and Palestinian sources, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has claimed the lives of 86 Palestinians since the beginning of the year (including members of armed groups and civilians, including minors), 12 Israeli civilians (including three minors) and a policeman, as well as a Ukrainian woman.
