ESCALATING VIOLENCE

Israeli Airstrike Kills Pregnant Woman

An Israeli airstrike killed a pregnant Palestinian woman and her 2-year-old daughter Sunday, according to a Gaza health official. Around the same time in the West Bank, a Palestinian woman detonated an explosive in her car, injuring an Israeli soldier and herself. In this new round of violence, this marks the first use of explosive devices as opposed to the previous stabbings and shootings that have characterized the recent uptick in conflict.
