Since last October, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been marked by a wave of stabbing attacks: Palestinians and Israeli Arabs have carried out over 100 knife attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians.


Faced with this new form of violence, Israeli authorities have re-implemented their controversial house demolition policy, meaning that bulldozers are sent to level the homes of the knife attackers' families.
