However, the larger context is that this year has been one of the most violent years in recent memory.
Overall, there has been an increase in clashes with Palestinian terror groups, specifically Islamic Jihad and the Lions' Den. There have been near-daily clashes during raids. Many of them have resulted in casualties, primarily among Palestinians.
While critics usually blame Israel, or portray the Palestinians as solely civilians and not as performing terrorist acts, the overall story is more complex.
The government in power since May 2021 led by Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid was a left-leaning government, ostensibly the kind that would be most likely to reduce tensions.
However, the almost-daily clashes in the West Bank point to a larger problem, whose address is not in Jerusalem.
