News of Terrorism and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict (April 18-24, 2012)

The statistics do not include rockets fired which fell inside the Gaza Strip. As of April 24, 2012. 


3 Nakba Day events are organized to mark the establishment of the State of Israel, regarded by the Palestinians as the catastrophe of their defeat in Israel's War of Independence in 1948. The focus of the events on May 15, 2011, was the Druze village of Majdal Shams in the northern Golan Heights. The Syrian security forces did not prevent rioters from invading Israeli territory, breaking through the border fence and entering the village. The rioters clashed violently with IDF forces during the invasion, four of them were killed and dozens were wounded. Along the Israeli-Lebanese border the Lebanese army tried unsuccessfully to contain the riot and in the attempted border crossing ten rioters were killed and dozens wounded. In Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip, limited demonstrations were held and the PA and Hamas contained them and prevented them from spinning out of control.
