IDF Puts Uprising Death Toll at 417

Download PDF for this date

Israeli security forces have killed 417 Arabs and wounded nearly 7,000 in the West Bank and Gaza Strip since the Palestinian uprising began 19 months ago, an Israel Defense Force spokesman reported Monday.

But other sources have reported a higher number of fatalities.

The Israel Center for Human Rights said 486 Palestinians were killed, but its figure takes into account those killed by Israeli civilians.

The center’s total is up to date as of Sunday, when two Palestinians were shot to death in the West Bank. The IDF’s figures cover the period ending July 4.

The IDF put the number of Palestinians injured through July 4 at 6,912.
