​Public reports suggest that from June 2017 until 4 June 2018, 6 91 Israelis, 2 of them soldiers, and over 190 16,200 Palestinians have been wounded killed.

The British Government does not compile an independent assessment of whether those killed wounded could be classified as civilians or militants. We call on the relevant authorities to ensure that any incident involving loss of life is investigated thoroughly and transparently.
