Attacks against Palestinians increase by 50 percent in 2018

As attacks on Palestinians increase, Israel's state comptroller has criticised Israeli police for failing to investigate crimes committed against Palestinians.

    There's been an increase in attacks by Israelis from illegal settlements against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank since the start of the year, according to the UN.

    Palestinians in Zone B of the West Bank, where Israel maintains authority over security matters, say that Israeli forces do not protect them from settler attacks, and, when they file complaints, they rarely lead to indictment or conviction.

    Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid spoke to Palestinian victims about the daily struggle to protect themselves.
