The First Intifada (1987–1993) (also "intifada") was a Palestinian uprising against the Israeli occupation in the Palestinian Territories.[5] The uprising began in the Jabalia refugee camp and quickly spread throughout Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem.[6]

Despite violent acts, Palestinian actions primarily included nonviolent civil disobedience and resistance movement. There were general strikes, boycotts on Israeli products, refusal to pay taxes, graffiti, and barricades, but the Palestinian demonstrations that included stone-throwing by youths against the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) defined the violence for many.[7] The violence was directed at both Israeli soldiers and civilians.

Intra-Palestinian violence was a prominent feature of the Intifada, with widespread executions of alleged Israeli collaborators. While Israeli forces killed an estimated 1,100 Palestinians and Palestinians killed 164 Israelis, Palestinians killed an estimated 1,000 other Palestinians as alleged collaborators, although fewer than half had any proven contact with the Israeli authorities.[3][4]
