According to the UN’s OCHA-OPT,
there have been 19 Palestinians killed by the IDF in 2020 so far.
At this same time in 2019, the number was 90
. In 2018, it was 222
This is a reduction in fatalities of of over 90% since 2018.
The last date a Palestinian was killed by the IDF was August 19, over a month ago.
I’m sure COVID-19 has something to do with it since there are fewer violent demonstrations and they are smaller so don’t have as much of a chance to get out of hand.
But the huge reduction of deaths altogether is a remarkable statistic. And it is a statistic that no one wants to talk about.
