The incident prompted a number of speculations and assessments regarding the development of an armed struggle in the West Bank and whether further developments might unfold in the future. In Gaza, more than 70 Palestinians have been injured by Israeli forces, two of whom succumbed to their wounds, amid the continuation and the tightening of the Israeli blockade on the Strip. One Israeli forces’ member was killed on the Gaza border after a Palestinian protester opened fire towards him. Furthermore, Israeli daily bombardment of the Gaza Strip was reported the last ten days of the month.
