The majority were killed during border demonstrations, though others have died in airstrikes and tank shelling.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced the killing of Aisha al-Rabi (48 years) from Badia village from Salfit governorate north of west bank following an attack by Israeli settlers threw stones at her husband auto. The Israeli military said its forces shot and killed people who had crossed the fence and approached an army post.
After the murder of Israeli activist Ari Fuld who was stabbed in the back by a Palestinian terrorist two weeks ago there has been a significant uptick in terrorist activity in Judea and Samaria.
The escalation in violence between Palestinians and the Israeli army over the weekend came after rumors have been circulating recently about a multilateral agreement between Hamas and various elements in the region, with Qatar pledging this week $150 million, including for fuel supply, in humanitarian aid for Gaza.

Al-Rawbi, 47 and a mother of eight, was pronounced dead at hospital late on Friday from a head injury sustained in the stone-throwing incident, according to Palestinian news agency Wafa. Her husband saw a group of settlers nearby, Rabi said.
According to Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, police have opened an investigation into the death.

However, thousands again gathered Friday in sites along the border, AFP correspondents said.
