UNOCHA Casualty Report October 1-31, 2015

Here are excerpts from today’s UNOCHA report on casualties in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) and Israel for the month of October, 2015:

“CASUALTIES IN THE OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORY (OPT) AND ISRAEL 1- 31 October 2015 Heightened tension which began in mid-September 2015 in the Old City of Jerusalem, increased significantly from 1 October throughout the oPt and Israel, characterized by widespread confrontations with Israeli forces, alongside almost daily attacks on Israelis. In this context, serious protection concerns have been raised including related to deliberate attacks on Israeli civilians by Palestinians and excessive use of force against Palestinians by Israeli military and police, including possible extra-judicial killings. As noted by the UN Deputy Secretary-General, the violence is taking place in the context of a “stifling and humiliating occupation that has lasted almost half a century.”

“Palestinian Casualties:

Fatalities 69

Injuries 7392

Israeli Casualties:

Fatalities 8

Injuries 115”
