The Israeli-Palestinian relations have long been tense over their territorial conflict, with Palestine seeking diplomatic recognition for their independent state on the territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
In late March, the situation saw a further deterioration, as Palestinians launched protest campaigns at the Gaza border, which prompted violent clashes between the protesters and the Israeli security forces. The Palestinian Health Ministry estimates the number of Palestinian fatalities at over 200 people since March.
