Intifada toll 2000-2005
The four years of the Palestinian intifada have cost more than 4,000 lives. B'tselem, an Israeli human rights group, has been tracking casualty figures on both sides.

Most of the statistics cover the period from 29 September 2000 to 15 January 2005.

3,135 killed by security forces in the West Bank and Gaza including 627 aged under 18, 181 killed in extrajudicial executions and 288 (including at least 29 aged under 18) killed in the course of these assassinations.


54 killed by security forces in Israel

    ECONOMIC COSTS

    The World Bank reported in 2004 that after almost four years of conflict and Israeli restrictions on movement that disrupt business activity, average Palestinian incomes had dropped by more than one third, and a quarter of the workforce was unemployed.

    Nearly one-half of all Palestinians live below the poverty line. More than 600,000 people (16% of the population) cannot afford even the basic necessities for subsistence.
