List of violent incidents in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, 2014

This is a list of individual incidents and statistical breakdowns of incidents of violence between Israel and Palestinians in 2014 as part of the ongoing Israeli–Palestinian conflict, but exclusive of particular events that fall within the parameters of the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict. Given that many incidents take place in the Palestinian territories, it includes all behavior that might be considered a violation of the protocols regarding the obligations of both sides in international law as formulated by the Geneva Conventions, and specifically in the Fourth Geneva Convention.[1][2]


2,314 Palestinians were killed and 17,125 injured by Israeli operations in 2014, a rise from 39 deaths and 3,964 injuries caused in the previous year, according to UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Over the same period 87 Israelis were killed, and 2,629 injured. The majority of casualties occurred during the Gaza War, but 58 Palestinians were killed and 6,028 injured in the West Bank, the highest figure since 2007. Palestinian attacks on Israeli civilians, mostly settlers, and security forces resulted in 12 fatalities, compared to 4 the previous year.[3][4] In 2014, the Israeli military administration in the West Bank demolished 493 structures and homes of 969 Palestinians; 97 buildings in East Jerusalem; the homes of 208 Palestinians in East Jerusalem; and an average of 9 Palestinian buildings per week.[5]

According to the United States Human Rights Report for the year, the most significant human rights abuses across the occupied territories by multiple actors consisted of excessive use of force against civilians, including killings; arbitrary arrest and associated torture and abuse, often with impunity.' The Report states also that Palestinian detainees suffered abuses, particularly during arrest and interrogation, properties were confiscated or demolished, and limitations were placed on freedom of expression, assembly, and association. In addition, severe restrictions were imposed on Palestinians' internal and external freedom of movement.[7][8]

One of the girls, Einas Khalil, was killed; the other Nilin Asfour, sustained serious injuries. The driver fled from the scene for fear of being lynched. He immediately reported the incident and stopped at Ofra, the closest Jewish town on his way. Israeli police concluded it was an accident. Palestinians at the scene asserted it was deliberate.[66][67][68][69] The accident took place on Highway 60, an intercity road where the speed limit is 80 km/h (50 Miles/h).
  • On 22 October, Adbel-Rahman Shaloudi, a 21-year-old Palestinian, who is said to have joined Hamas in prison, and who came from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, rammed his car into a group of passengers waiting at the Ammunition Hill Light Rail station. The attack left two dead, including a three-month-old baby, and seven injured.[59][70] Shaloudi was shot dead while running from the scene. A brief uptick in Arab rioting followed.[71] NGOs, such as Amnesty International and B'Tselem claim that Shaludi's case, and several others in similar incidents where a suspect was killed on the spot, raise suspicions that Israel is encouraging a policy of extrajudicial killings, or executions without trial.[72]

The main suspect was later shot and killed while resisting arrest, according to the police.[73][74] Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld stated that a raid of Muataz Hijazi (32), who was shot dead, provided them with substantial evidence linking Hijazi to the shooting.[75] The suspect was said to have had a handgun and to have attempted to fire at police officers.[12] Local Palestinian eyewitnesses challenge the account, claiming he was wounded at the time of the incursion, lay on the rooftop, had an electric drill nearby, and was shot at and crushed by a water-tank.[76] Hijazi had been a member of Islamic Jihad and served eleven years in Israeli prisons for security offenses; Islamic Jihad immediately published an obituary claiming Hijazi as a member.[77] 15 people where injured when Israeli forces fired on them as they attempted to take Hijaz to hospital after the shootout.[76]

Mahmoud Abbas responded to the security closure of the Temple Mount, stating that "harming the places sacred to Muslims and Christians is a red line", that he would "not permit this line to be crossed,"[77] and that the closure was a "declaration of war".[78][79] His call to Palestinians to protect the Temple Mount from visits by Jews "by any means" has been widely viewed in Israel as incitement to violence.[80] Israeli prime minister Netanyahu characterized Abbas' call as part of "a wave of incitement by radical Islamic elements and by Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas)".[81]

Abbas' Fatah Party called for Friday, 31 October 2014, to be a "Day of Rage" in Jerusalem.[82][83][84] The protests on 31 October and on 1 November were not notably large and there was little violence.[85][86][87]

The attack left three dead, including the perpetrator, and thirteen wounded, one of whom a Palestinian. A border police was killed on the site, Yeshiva student Shalom Ba'adani (17) was critically hurt and succumbed to his wounds several days later.[92] The injured Palestinian, 60 years old, was reported as an Israeli victim, but handcuffed as a suspected accomplice, and died of his injuries on December 7.[93]

According to his family's lawyer, a Palestinian doctor who attended the autopsy stated that al-Ramuni had been murdered. Al-Ramuni's coworker, Muatasem Fakeh, claimed he saw evidence of violence on al-Ramuni's body, and that it wasn't possible to hang oneself, where he was found, on the back stepos of the bus. The bus driver's family said he had been a happy man, and accused "settlers" of killing him.[121] The Israeli director of the Institute where the autopsy was performed stated that the Palestinian doctor, Sabir al-Aloul, concurred that the cause of death was suicide.[122] However, the Palestinian doctor, director of Al-Quds University's Institute of Forensic Medicine, has gone on the record stating that he suspects foul play:[123] his first vertebra was not dislocated and livor mortis signs were on his buttocks, not his legs.[124] The pathologist refused to answer a summons to be questioned by Israeli police.[125]
Al-Ramuni's funeral was attended by thousands. At the mourners' tent in Jabel Mukaber, according to a Ynet source, the idea he had committed suicide was dismissed by all; those who feel crazy, it was claimed by locals, always go to the mosque and, bowing their head to the ground, discharge their madness by "earthing", a metaphor the locals, eletricians to much of Jerusalem, use. People there do not commit suicide, they claimed.[126] The Palestinian foreign ministry accused the Israeli police of "attempts to hide the hideous crime" by claiming it was suicide.[121] With rumours about the alleged murder running rampant, small riots broke out on the night of 16 November, in a number of Jerusalem locations, including At-Tur, Isawiya, Abu Dis, and Ras al-Amud.

'Human rights problems related to actions by Israeli authorities inside the West Bank and Gaza included reports of excessive use of force against civilians, including killings; abuse of Palestinian detainees, particularly during arrest and interrogation; austere and overcrowded detention facilities; improper use of security detention procedures; demolition and confiscation of Palestinian property; limitations on freedom of expression, assembly, and association; and severe restrictions on Palestinians' internal and external freedom of movement. Violence by settlers against the Palestinian population continued to be a problem, as did inconsistent punishment of these acts by Israeli authorities. The IDF maintained restrictions on movement into and out of the Gaza Strip and largely limited the travel of Palestinians out of Gaza to humanitarian cases and some business travelers.'
