How many more Palestinians must die for the sake of Israel's 'security'?

A major Israeli army campaign is taking social media by storm. The unstated aim of the "#Untie_Our_Hands" initiative is the desire to kill, with no accountability, more Palestinian protesters at the nominal border with the Gaza Strip. The campaign was motivated by the killing of an Israeli sniper, Barel Hadaria Shmueli, who was reportedly shot from the Palestinian side of the fence on 21 August.

My immediate question is this: what more do Israeli soldiers want? They have already killed more than 300 unarmed Palestinian protesters and wounded and maimed thousands more at the Gaza fence during what Palestinians referred to as the "Great March of Return" protests between 2018 and 2020. And they have done so with impunity. Nobody is "tying their hands".

This "march" is now being renewed, though it often takes place at night. Frustrated Palestinian youth gather in their thousands, chanting anti-Israeli occupation slogans and, at times, throwing rocks at Israeli snipers deployed nearly a mile away.
