A report published by Al-Quds Center for the Study of Israeli-Palestinian Affairs revealed that 268 Palestinians were murdered by Israel since October 2015, including the killing of 21-year-old Hammad al-Sheikh in Occupied Jerusalem on Wednesday.

According to the report, 78 of Palestinians killed during this period were from al-Khalil (Hebron), 59 others from Jerusalem and 24 from Ramallah.

Others victims came from different towns of the West Bank, including Nablus, Tulkarem, Salfit, and Qalqiliya.

According to the the same report, 34 Palestinians from the Gaza Strip were also murdered by the Israeli army during the same period, while two others were killed inside Israel.

The report noted that two other Arabs, one from Jordan and the other from Sudan, were also murdered during the same period.

Palestinian children in particular have reportedly paid a heavy price during this period, with 77 Palestinian children killed at the hands of Israeli soldiers and settlers, with Ramadan Thawabteh from Bethlehem being the youngest. Thawabteh died of teargas inhalation at the age of three months in the Bethlehem town of Bit Fujjar last October.

The Israeli army has accused many of these Palestinians killed during the same period of attempting to carry out stabbing attacks against Israeli soldiers, an accusation that Palestinians have in many cases refuted, accusing Israel of using the pretense to justify its violence against Palestinians.
