Dozens of Palestinians were injured last night in clashes with Israeli police in East Jerusalem on the sidelines of a Palestinian funeral.

Aged 23, he had succumbed to injuries inflicted three weeks earlier during clashes on the esplanade of the Mosques.

Last Friday (May 13, 2022), Israeli police violently attacked the funeral procession of Shireen Abu Akleh, the Al Jazeera journalist, killed in Jenin, during an operation by Israeli forces.


In less than a week, at the end of March 2022, the Israelis for their part suffered three attacks carried out by Palestinians.

In all, since the beginning of 2022, 48 Palestinians and 18 Israelis have been killed.

Nearly thirty years after the hopes aroused by the Oslo Accords, the peace process is at such a standstill that no one dares to mention it anymore.

Are Palestinians and Israelis condemned to violence?

Is there any chance of finding a solution to this decades-long conflict?

Any political will?
