Established in August 2003, PMG monitors ground conditions in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza. Catalogued daily, it's an invaluable resource.
Violence includes "price tag" attacks. Settlers use the term to describe retaliations relating to Israeli government actions limiting their political goals. Palestinians bear their brunt.
From September 2004 - December 2011, 3,700 incidents occurred. They're catalogued by time, type, location, number of injuries and/or deaths, and settlements of origin. Every West Bank governorate is affected.
Key is that Israeli and Palestinian security forces do little to protect civilians from violence. They're largely vulnerable on their own. They live in a virtual war zone.
For example, on August 23, Al Haq headlined "Escalation in Settler Violence: Molotov Cocktail Severely Injures Palestinian family," saying:
Days earlier, "an Israeli settler threw a Molotov cocktail into a Palestinian taxi." Ghayatha family members were severely injured. Some are in critical condition.
Basem Ghayatha saw an Israeli settler in Orthodox dress walk through nearby bushes. Within two meters of the taxi, he threw the explosive. It set the vehicle ablaze. Basem lost control. He crashed into a roadside safety barrier. Passengers were trapped for several minutes engulfed in flames.
Jamila's plastic shoes melted to the floor. She struggled to get out. Her daughter Iman followed. A passing car driver called an ambulance. Family members were taken to Jersulem's Haddasa 'Ein Karim Hospital.
