As Israeli operations escalate in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, Palestinians are growing concerned over Benjamin Netanyahu’s return to power after his bloc won a majority of seats in the Knesset, along with his most extreme-right allies, which might pave the way for further escalation in various Palestinian areas.

More than 100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces in the West Bank this year, while 20 people were killed in a series of deadly attacks carried out by Palestinians inside Israel.
