The West Bank, Golan Heights and Gaza Strip make up Palestine at the moment. Borders and statehood are not fixed but regularly being questioned and changed.

As students discover when studying about the Israeli- Palestine conflict in Year 8 RE, some conflicts are complicated and bubble on, killing and injuring people, year after year after year. In recent weeks there have been kidnappings and murders from both sides, and now we have rocket attacks taking place.

The latest BBC report shows how the tit for tat killings has escalated: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-28222245
