  • Chronology of violence between Palestinians and Israel 
    Updated: Oct-13-15 4:24 pm

    JERUSALEM - A rash of Palestinian stabbing attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers in recent weeks has killed eight Israelis and at least 29 Palestinians. The unrest began a month ago, when Palestinians repeatedly barricaded themselves inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem's Old City, hurling stones and firebombs at police. Tensions were fueled by Palestinian allegations that Israel plans to change the delicate arrangement at the hilltop compound, sacred to both Muslims and Jews. Israel has adamantly denied the allegations and accused Palestinian leaders of inciting the violence and spreading lies over the shrines. Violence was initially confined to east Jerusalem and the West Bank - territories Israel captured from Jordan in the 1967 war and claimed by the Palestinians for a future state - but later spread to Israeli cities in the form of deadly stabbing attacks.
