Since the beginning of October, 199 Palestinians have been killed in shootings and clashes with Israeli forces in the occupied Palestinian territories and Israel, while 28 Israelis have been killed in knife and gun attacks.

One Eritrean asylum seeker was killed after he was mistaken for a Palestinian attacker during a raid in southern Israel. 

An Israeli settler was run over by a vehicle near Hebron, in what the Palestinian driver said was an accident. Footage of the incident showed the settler attacking cars while wielding a wooden stick before he was hit by a truck. The driver reportedly turned himself in to Palestinian police after the incident.  

Rights groups have warned that Israel is using excessive force against Palestinians and that some of the incidents have amounted to extrajudicial killings.

The violence has been triggered in part by recent visits by Jewish groups to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem, coupled with Israeli restrictions on Palestinian access to the mosque, one of Islam's holiest sites.

Frustration is also mounting as Israel continues to build Jewish-only settlements throughout the West Bank, taking over Palestinian lands in defiance of international law.

Below is an interactive of those killed on both sides in the first and most intense month of violence:
