This week Israeli occupying forces killed 10 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including two children. Two of the victims bled to death. Israeli forces conducted a series of incursions into Palestinian areas, accompanied by indiscriminate shelling. The Israeli retaliatory campaign continues against families of wanted Palestinians and those who allegedly have carried out armed attacks against Israeli targets. Over 1200 Palestinians have been detained. The tight siege of the Occupied Palestinian Territories continued to be imposed.
