The majority of Palestinian deaths during the recent violence, which some have called a third intifada, occurred at Israeli checkpoints, according to a study by the Al-Quds Centre for the Studies of Palestinian and Israeli Affairs. 


The study found that 68% of killings were carried out at checkpoints, primarily Beit Anun in Hebron, Hawara and Zaatara in Nablus, in addition to the Jerusalem checkpoints of Beit El and Etzion.


The study added that executions and excessive use of force caused 84% of Palestinian deaths.


The study also said that most Palestinians killed during the recent violence came from Hebron, where 50 Palestinians were killed.
