Violence getting worse in Israel and Palestinian territories

Every so many months violence in Israel and the Palestinian territories gets so bad it gets into the international press and we hear about it in Britain. In Key Stage 3 RE when students learn about pilgrimages we start to learn a little about the disagreement and resulting conflict which has meant Israelis and Palestinians have continued to suffer over so many years.

On Saturday two Palestinians aged 12 and 15 were shot dead and two knife attacks left five Israelis wounded. The tension had risen due to events during the last week. You may have seen on Friday when the Israeli army killed seven Palestinians in Gaza during a rally in support of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

Why is there so much conflict and argument in Israel and the Palestinian territories?
