    Thirty years ago, on this day, the first Palestinian uprising, known as the Intifada, began in Gaza.

    The Intifada was sparked by the deaths of four Palestinians in December 1987. By the time it ended, more than 1,100 people had died and roughly 16,000 had been arrested.

    This became a watershed moment when Palestinians shifted to a more aggressive resistance that lasted for years.
