According to the Israeli army, its operations are a reaction to the “great increase in terrorist attacks” in the West Bank, an area occupied by Israel since 1967: it speaks of “more than 550 attempted attacks since the beginning of the war” with the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas in the Gaza Strip on October 7.

Since the outbreak of war, at least 180 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank by fire from Israeli soldiers or Jewish settlers, according to Palestinian health authorities.
