ABSTRACT
Starting in September 2000 renewed fighting between Palestinian nationalists and Israel marked the effective end of peace negotiations between the two sides that had resulted in the Oslo peace agreement of 1993. Palestinians, including Islamists from Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the secular Tanzim and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, staged repeated bomb attacks inside Israel which often used suicide bombers. The Israeli Defense Forces retaliated by demolishing Palestinian refugee camps, restricting the movement of Palestinians, and attempts to assassinate leader of Hamas, in particular.
