Recent Situation in the West Bank – Palestine


  • Daily Invasions of Palestinian Cities, Villages and Refugee Camps in the West Bank.


In the past 2 months, The Israeli occupation forces have been launching a daily campaign of military invasions of different areas in the West Bank, especially the refugee camps in Jenin, Nablus, Tulkarm and Jericho. The main aim is to detain Palestinian men, women and children, most of whom participate in protests and are active in exposing the Israeli occupation’s crimes on different media platforms.

During those invasions, the Israeli forces murdered more than 302 Palestinians since Oct 7th; more than 505 martyrs since the beginning of 2023, making it one of the deadliest years for Palestinians. Not to mention the massive humanitarian catastrophe and genocide that Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are going through in which the Israeli military killed more than 20,000 Palestinians (most of whom are children and women), injured more than 52,586 and displaced over 1.7 million Gazans to the South of the Strip which is also continuously getting bombed by Israeli warplanes. It’s undeniable that the past 75 days in 2023 have been the most horrific and atrocious for Palestinians throughout the past 75 years living under the Israeli occupation. Despite all of the struggles, all Palestinians remain resilient and persistent in their fight for liberation and to end the occupation and colonization of their land.

An example of the destruction caused by the Israeli military: On October 19th this year, the Israeli occupation conducted a massive destructive operation in Nur Shams Refugee Camp in Tulkarm Governorate in the Northern West Bank. This invasion resulted in the damage of different parts of the refugee camp’s infrastructure and property, the martyrdom of 3 Palestinians and a number of injuries due to an attack by an Israeli piloted aircraft on Nur Shams. This attack is a mere example of the multiple Israeli attacks that have been continuously and frequently repeated on a daily basis, especially on refugee camps, all over the West Bank since the beginning of 2023, particularly after October 7th.

The Israeli forces have been increasing the number and intensity of their checkpoints all over the West Bank between all areas, therefore cutting off the cities, villages and refugee camps from each other and restricting the movement of Palestinians much more than before.
