Aumentan las tensiones Israel-Palestina

By Duncan Mil

February 23, 2023 - Las fuerzas israelíes han matado a por lo menos 29 palestinos desde
que el gobierno de línea dura de Israel, ampliamente considerado el más derechista en la historia del país, tomó posesión el 29 de diciembre.

Israeli troops killed at least 11 Palestini­ans and wounded more than 100 on Wednesday (February 22, 2023) during a gun battle dur­ing a day­light raid into the city of Nablus in the occu­pied West Bank.

The Palestinian Author­ity con­demned the raid as “state ter­ror­ism and a dan­ger­ous escal­a­tion of the con­flict.” Hamas, the mil­it­ant group that con­trols the Gaza Strip, said its “patience is run­ning out.”

Yes­ter­day’s raid is the biggest since Benjamin Netanyahu’s hard­line new gov­ern­ment took office in Decem­ber with ultrana­tion­al­ists in key secur­ity posts, including some, such as Itamar Ben-Gvir, who has expressed support for Baruch Goldstein, a Jewish Israeli who killed 29 Palestinians at the Ibrahimi Mosque in 1994.

The latest violence caps a month of escal­at­ing viol­ence, with Israeli com­mandos killing 10 Palestini­ans dur­ing a raid on the Jenin refugee camp in late Janu­ary and a Palestinian gun­man shoot­ing dead seven Israelis out­side a syn­agogue in an East Jer­u­s­alem set­tle­ment the next day.

UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs data shows that 2021 was the deadliest year for Palestinians since the 2014 Gaza War when the city of Jenin and its refugee camp re-emerged as a centre of armed resistance, and Nablus followed suit.

This year is already on course to surpass 2021 if the number of deaths stays at the same level, and there is now the potential for a full-scale uprising among Palestinians.
