Palestinians Celebrate Stabbing Attacks With Wave Of Cartoons
Unrest is escalating across Israel and the Palestinian territories
Palestinians are celebrating a spate of stabbing attacks with a slew of political cartoons as violence across Israel and the Palestinian territories rises.
On Tuesday, Palestinians wielding knives and a gun killed three people and wounded others in a set of separate assaults near Tel Aviv and in Jerusalem. Seven Israelis and 27 Palestinians in total have died over the last two weeks, and tension continues to escalate, according to Reuters.
Vocativ used our technology to collect online chatter about the swelling conflict, revealing that Palestinians are using cartoons to spread their perspectives on the unrest. Many of them are saying the Intifada, or uprising, has launched. They’re posting symbols of the swelling violence, including knives — used in an ongoing spate of deadly stabbings that shows no signs of subsiding.
