As the onslaught on Gaza continues, the West Bank has been under Israeli assault long before October 7, 2023. Along with daily military incursions, Israel has intensified and deepened the fragmentation of the West Bank. Since October 7, thousands of Palestinians have been detained in the West Bank and hundreds have been killed by military and settlers' fire. And while some parties, including the U.S. administration, pay a lip service to a political plan that would somehow lead to the creation of a Palestinian state, Israel has been following a relentless policy to annex the large areas of the West Bank and to perpetuate its control over the rest of it.
