Israeli forces have attacked more Palestinians across the occupied West Bank in raids and direct confrontations, injuring thousands and killing scores of Palestinians in the past two months alone.

This latest flare-up was triggered by violence from Israeli settlers towards Palestinians, who also believe Tel Aviv is trying to stop access to the al-Aqsa compound, one of the holiest sites for Muslims around the world.  In response, during this latest crackdown, Israel has claimed Palestinians have tried to stab Israelis.

Usually, in these situations, it has been almost impossible to verify what has actually been happening.  However, more and more online film evidence suggests Israeli forces have been planting the knives on their victims, many of whom appear to have posed no threat before being killed.  In this video footage, an Israeli soldier walks around a wounded Palestinian. But, instead of helping him or calling for medical care, the Israeli soldier simply executes him.
