Israel: March 14, 2003


A government report states that 365 of the 1,945 Palestinians killed by the Israeli army in the last 29 months were innocent civilians. Of that number, 130 were 16 years old and under, and that the 235 adults killed who were not part of any terrorist organization, many were women or elderly. So far, the violence has killed  3,075 (2,300 Palestinians and 717 Israelis.) The Palestinian dead included  441 members of major terrorist organizations like  Hamas and Islamic Jihad. These groups have carried out most of the suicide bomb attacks on Israelis. Another 324 of the dead belonged to  Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement and related organizations. Then there were 69 dead terrorists belonging to the Popular Front for the Liberation of  Palestine (PFLP) and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP). Of the  remaining  dead, 417 were suspected of involvement in terrorist organizations. The remaining Palestinian dead were killed by other Palestinians. None of the 717 Israeli dead belonged to any terrorist organizations.
