In recent years, the phenomenon of settler violence against Palestinians throughout the West Bank has accelerated.
In their new Settler Violence Report, Peace Now’s Settlement Watch Team reviews the documentation of 1200
violent incidents from 2012 until July 2021, collected by Yesh Din, and examines the location of the incidents and
their proximity to the various settlements. The conclusions are unequivocal: most of the documented violent attacks
on Palestinians (63%) occurred near outposts considered illegal by the state of Israel, where less than 5% of
Israeli settlers reside.
Our colleagues at Peace Now joined us on Thursday, December 16 for an exclusive webinar on the findings of this new report.
