West Bank

Killings: According to Al-Haq documentation, since the outbreak of the second Intifada in September 2000 until the end of June 2012, 1,941 Palestinians were killed in the West Bank, of whom 380 were children and 106 female. It is estimated that 313 Palestinians were killed in targeted assassinations.

House demolitions: During the same period, Al-Haq documented a total of 587 punitive house demolitions in the West Bank (511 completely demolished, 70 partially demolished and six completely sealed), leading to the displacement of 3,372 people. Israel has also carried out a large number of house demolitions based on claims that the houses were built without the required permits (administrative house demolition). Since 2004, the Israeli authorities have demolished 1,255 houses due to the lack of a building permit; of which 353 were in East Jerusalem, leading to the displacement of 4,042 people.

The Gaza Strip

Killings: According to Al-Haq documentation, between January 2009 and the end of June 2012, 250[1] Palestinians were killed in the Gaza Strip by Israeli occupying forces (133 in Gaza City, 36 in Khan Younes, 37 in Deir al-Balah and 44 in Rafah), of whom 32 were children and five were female. Of the 250 Palestinians killed in the Gaza Strip, it is estimated that 21 were killed in targeted assassinations. During the same period, a total of 18 Palestinians (14 in Gaza, one in Khan Younes, two in Deir al-Balah and one in Rafah) were killed by Hamas government officials in the Gaza Strip, of whom three were female.
