The Daily File - November 7-14, 2023

Updated: Jan 28

Tuesday through following Tuesday.


Note
I have no way of confirming which of the killed or wounded persons were armed and who were civilians. The report focuses on dry facts and only on the West Bank. Our purpose is to raise consciousness about the goings-on in the West Bank and the steep rise in the numbers of persons killed and wounded by live fire, and colonist violence. Beyond things reported by Israeli media, this report is no support of any organization nor of any kind of terrorism. - Adi Ronen Argov
