Israeli-Palestinian affairs are often at the centre of international news stories. Media and public opinion tend to focus on that context in particular whenever a tragic event occurs (a bombing, a killing, a terrorist attack). Unfortunately, such events are not infrequent. However, apart from very specific periods of outright combat-such as during the Second Intifada, or, more recently, during Israeli’s military operations in the Gaza Strip in the summer of 2014 and knife attacks in the autumn of 2015-one might envisage a quasi-normal situation, only occasionally interrupted by sudden upsurges of violence. This is particularly the case if we consider the Israeli cities and Jerusalem, since the majority of armed clashes take place in the Palestinian territories of Gaza and West Bank.
