Since October 1, Israeli forces or settlers have killed over 70 Palestinians, including protesters and bystanders.

While the attacks were initially focused in Jerusalem, the epicenter has recently shifted to Hebron, the West Bank's largest city, where there have been daily protests decrying the increasingly forceful occupation.

Hebron is home to a shrine known to Jews as the Cave of the Patriarchs and to Muslims as the Ibrahimi Mosque. It has 200,000 Palestinian residents. Around 500 Israeli settlers live in the center, protected by an army-patrolled buffer zone.
