Israel-Palestine: The names of Palestinians and Israelis killed during the violence

At least 292 people were killed between 7 and 21 May, including at least 71 children and 41 women

Israel and the Palestinian movement Hamas reached a ceasefire early on Friday after two weeks of violence that have left hundreds dead and thousands more injured across the region. The hostilities began amid Israeli authorities’ crackdown on Palestinians in Jerusalem, first in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood, then at al-Aqsa Mosque.

According to the latest official information from Palestinian and Israeli sources, at least 292 people were been killed between 7 and 21 May, including at least 71 children and 45 women.

The vast majority were Palestinian: Israeli air strikes on the besieged Gaza Strip killed at least 248 Palestinians, while a further 29 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem. Another two Palestinian citizens of Israel have been reported killed by Israeli fire. In Israel, 12 people have been reported killed by rockets launched from Gaza by Hamas, among them two children, two Palestinian citizens of Israel, two Thai citizens, and one Indian national. One person was also killed by Israeli forces in southern Lebanon during a protest in solidarity with Palestinians.

During the past two weeks, Middle East Eye has compiled a list of names, ages and genders of  those killed, using available information from official Palestinian and Israeli sources, including the Gaza Ministry of Health, and MEE’s own reporting on the ground.

This list is far from exhaustive. The chaos that has hit the region means that many people have yet to be publicly identified; for some – especially in Gaza – the date of death has yet to be released. It has not yet been possible to ascertain exactly which of those killed in Gaza were Hamas and Islamic Jihad members, though the vast majority are thought to be civilians.

The list will be updated as more details emerge.
