USAID Leaves West Bank and Gaza Strip - Reports
Earlier this month, Palestinians rammed a vehicle into a group of Israeli soldiers in the West Bank, with two attackers killed and one injured in fire opened by the Israeli military.

The situation between Israel and the Palestinian Authority remains tense over a series of attacks and incidents that have taken place in recent months.

For decades, Israel has been in conflict with the Palestinians, who have been seeking diplomatic recognition for their independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, which is partially occupied by Israel, and the Gaza Strip.
