Eyes on Gaza as West Bank killings spike

While eyes are on Gaza on the eve of the Great March of Return’s first birthday, Palestinian fatalities at the hands of Israeli occupation forces have spiked in the West Bank.

Of the 31 Palestinians killed by soldiers and settlers so far this year, 16 were slain in the West Bank, 10 during the month of March alone.

With nearly 200 Palestinians killed and more than 6,500 wounded by live fire during the Great March of Return, human rights groups have called for Israel to release its rules of engagement, which the state has refused to disclose.

Last May, Israel’s high court gave the military the green light to continue its use of sniper fire against protesters in Gaza, ruling that protesters posed a danger to soldiers and civilians.
