A report issued Wednesday by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights says 2014 was the worst and bloodiest year for Palestinians since the Israeli occupation began.
The Gaza-based center said 2,280 Palestinians were killed and 11,724 others injured by Israeli forces, especially during the war on , Anadolu Agency reported.
Director General Raji Sourani said “2014 was the toughest, most bloody, painful and destructive on the Palestinian people.”
According to the report, 1,543 people were killed during the war on Gaza that year, which made up 70 percent of the total death toll.
Also, the report said the Israeli army detained 3,440 Palestinians, including more than 495 children and 49 women, in the West Bank, in addition to 210 people in Gaza.
