Over 140 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in 2023 – OCHA (+Photos)

Ramallah, May 20 (Prensa Latina) UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) on Saturday confirmed 141 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in Gaza and the West Bank in 2023.

A total of 33 deaths, including six children and four women, resulted from Israeli aggression in the Gaza Strip last week, while 108 deaths were reported in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The bi-weekly Protection of Civilians report covering the first two weeks of May showed that as many as 190 Palestinians got injured, including 64 minors and 38 women, as a result of shelling and occupation raids on the coastal enclave.

To date, Israeli authorities are holding the bodies of at least 133 dead Palestinians in prisons, some since 2016, according to a human rights organization.

Due to security operations and military attacks on camps in Nablus and Jenin, 236 Palestinians were injured and over 50 students were treated after inhaling tear gas fired by the Zionist military.

As of May 15, 688 Palestinians, including some 72 children, were injured by Israeli forces in the West Bank, 54 of them were shot with live ammunition.

According to OCHA, in addition to casualties, Israel demolished, confiscated or forced people to destroy 42 infrastructures in East Jerusalem and Area C of the West Bank, including 17 homes.

The UN entity stressed that the Israeli regime’s punitive demolitions constitute a form of collective punishment and, as such, are illegal under international law.
