Since last week we hear a lot about the Palestine -Israel conflict and protest in occupied West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem. Violent clashes have increased in frequency since Israeli security forces began to crackdown on Palestinian worshippers at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem last month.
So far 29 Palestinians has been killed and at least 1,990 Palestinians have been injured, according to the Palestinian Authority’s health ministry and medical sources. And the number of Israelis killed since the upsurge in violence is seven.
