According to the UN OCHA, 279 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces from the start of the year to 19 November in both the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

Some 30,666 have been injured, most while taking part in peaceful protests in Gaza as part of the “Great March of Return” which was launched in March calling for Palestinians’ right to return to the homes from which their families were forcibly displaced to make way for the creation of the state of Israel and calling for an end to the 11-year siege of the Strip.
