Fifty Israelis and 197 Palestinians were killed in political violence in 2005, B’Tselem reported. Of the 50 Israelis killed, 41 were civilians; of the 197 Palestinians, 124 were civilians, the human rights group reported. But the Israel Defense Forces took issues with the numbers, saying that more Israelis had been killed and that more of the Palestinians were involved in acts of terrorism.
