    The Facts

    • At least four Palestinians were reportedly killed in the West Bank on Tuesday as violence continues to escalate throughout the disputed territory. Near Hebron, one man was killed and at least eight others wounded during clashes.

    • In a village near Ramallah, two brothers were also allegedly killed by Israeli forces. Finally, a Palestinian man reportedly rammed his car into an Israeli soldier, seriously injuring her, before being shot dead by Israeli police.


    The Spin

    Pro-Palestine narrative

    Yet again, Israel is committing crimes against humanity by killing Palestinians with wanton aggression. The past year has been one of the deadliest years for Palestinians since the second Intifada, with hundreds of Palestinians being murdered by the Israeli regime. Israel must be held accountable for its crimes.

    Pro-Israel narrative

    Though Palestine supporters like to pretend that the Israeli military seeks to kill Palestinians with abandon, in reality, it's simply responding to Palestinian violence and terrorism. This has been a deadly year for Israelis, including a bomb attack in Jerusalem last week, so it's no surprise that the military needs to increase its operations in the West Bank. The violence will end when Palestinians put down their weapons.
