Briefing note - April 2016

The year 2015 was the most deadly since 2006 for Palestinians, including Palestine refugees, in the West Bank including East Jerusalem. Children and young people in particular have suffered. This briefing note focuses on Palestine refugee children and how deeply they have been affected by the recent upsurge in violence. It provides a summary of relevant events and trends, concentrating on, but not limited to, fatalities, injuries and displacement between October and December 2015.
