Protection of Civilians Weekly Report 18 - 24 June 2013 [EN/AR]

Key issues

● Violent clashes between Palestinian civilians and Israeli forces continued in the West Bank; the number of resulting injuries remains relatively low compared to previous months.

● Firing of rockets at Israel by Palestinian armed groups and Israeli airstrikes in Gaza resumed, but no casualties reported. Kerem Shalom was closed for two days and movement across Erez for Palestinians was limited to humanitarian cases only.

● The de facto authorities in the Gaza Strip executed two Palestinian civilians after convicting them of “collaborating with Israel”.
