Graphic details. Mapping Zionist murders in Palestine

Tracking the human toll of the wave of violence in the occupied Palestinian territories and Israel. Basma Atassi in Al Jazeera

(November 24) – Since the beginning of October, 94 Palestinians have been killed in shootings and clashes with Israeli forces in the occupied Palestinian territories and Israel, while 16 Israelis have been killed in knife and gun attacks.

One Eritrean asylum seeker was killed after he was mistaken for a Palestinian attacker during a raid in southern Israel.

An Israeli settler was run over by a vehicle near Hebron, in what the Palestinian driver said was an accident. Footage of the incident showed the settler attacking cars while wielding a wooden stick before he was hit by a truck. The driver reportedly turned himself in with Palestinian police after the incident.

Rights groups have warned that Israel is using excessive force against Palestinians and that some of the incidents amounted to extrajudicial killings.

The violence has been triggered in part by recent visits by Jewish groups to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem, coupled with Israeli restrictions on Palestinian access to the mosque, one of Islam’s holiest sites.

Frustration is also mounting as Israel continues to build Jewish-only settlements throughout the West Bank, taking over Palestinian lands, in defiance of international law.

Below is an interactive on Al Jazeera of those killed on both sides since the beginning of October:

    The horrible truth is that the entity referred to as “Israel” is a monster:

    For every Jewish Israeli child killed by Palestinians, 15.8 Palestinian children have been killed by Jewish Israelis since the year 2000.
