The committee also documented more than 150 attacks on individuals carried out by Israeli police or gangs of Jewish settlers.

On April 13, Palestinians began their protest against Israel’s brutal attacks on Palestinian worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque, as well as Israel’s plans to expel Palestinian families in Sheikh Jarrah.

Israel’s continued aggression on Jerusalem sparked a reaction from Palestinian factions.

Israel carried out brutal attacks in Gaza to prevent this reaction, killing about 290 people, including 69 children, 40 women, 17 elderly people, and injuring about 9,000 others, including 90 in critical condition.

So far no international sanctions have been applied to Israel. The United States has become Israel’s main protector from worldwide condemnation.
