Many Palestinian officials and organizations claim that Israel is practicing genocide against their people, but figures from the first quarter of 2007 show that three times as many Palestinian Arabs were killed by their own people than in confrontation with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), 34 Palestinians were killed and another 513 were injured either while attacking Israelis or during Israeli counter-terrorism activity in the first three months of this year.
By contrast, the Palestinian human rights organization Al Mezan reported 147 Palestinians killed and 1,065 injured in internal violence during the same period.
