More than a month of violence in the West Bank shows no signs of calming down.

Further stabbings have seen the death toll rise to over 100.

A Palestinian man was shot dead following an attempted attack on Israelis, while in a separate incident, a 16-year-old Palestinian girl was run over by a Jewish settler after trying to stab Israelis near the city of Nablus.

In the Gush Etzion region, a 21-year-old Israeli woman was found unconscious following a stabbing. Although rushed to hospital she later died of her wounds.

Israeli forces say they shot and killed her attacker, identified as a thirty-four-year-old man from near Bethlehem.

Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said defence officials would focus on the Hebron area, where, he said:
“We’re conducting arrests, roadblocks and are deploying more forces. We’ve also done that in Jerusalem when attacks happen there.”

On Sunday (November 22) protests took place calling for better security for the disputed West Bank settlements.

This came a day after hundreds of Israelis gathered in a ceremony in honour of an 18-year-old Jewish American who was killed in a shooting incident on Thursday (November 19) alongside an Israeli and a Palestinian.

Palestinians allege Israel is trying to change the status quo at the al-Aqsa compound – a site of religious importance to both Muslims and Jews. Israel denies any intention of doing so.
