Description
A senior United Nations official today warned the Security Council of the alarming spike in violence across the northern and central occupied West Bank, leading to numerous Palestinian and Israeli casualties.

Tor Wennesland, Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, said that deepening occupation, settlement-expansion, high levels of violence against civilians and the absence of a political horizon are rapidly eroding hope among Palestinians and Israelis. Military operations — including air strikes in the West Bank — attacks and settler-related incidents have intensified, alongside the use of more sophisticated weapons by Palestinians, including an advanced improvised explosive device and rockets launched towards Israel.

The meeting began at 10:27 a.m. and ended at 12:50 p.m.
