Palestinian political violence

Arab military volunteers in 1947

The common objectives of "Political Violence" or "Resistance" by the State of Palestine or Palestinian nationalists include self-determination in and sovereignty over Palestine, and recognition of a Palestinian state, either in place of both Israel and the Palestinian territories, or solely in the Palestinian territories. More limited goals include the release of Palestinian prisoners held hostage by the Israeli regime[1] or the Palestinian right of return.[2] Other motivations include personal grievances(injustice), trauma or revenge.[3] Its history begins from 1851 during the Ottoman Empire, and continued after the declaration of Israel in 1948.
