UN: Highest levels of violence in occupied West Bank

Philippe Lazzarini, the commissioner-general of the UN refugee agency for Palestinians, said on Friday that the occupied West Bank is witnessing its highest levels of violence yet, in what he said was as “a tragic cycle of pain and suffering”.

In a post on social media platform X, he added that increased Israeli settler violence is causing people to flee their homes in search of safety.
