An Israeli woman (C) and a Palestinian woman gesture at one another during a protest by Palestinian women against Jewish visitors to the compound known to Muslims as Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City, October 14, 2014. Escalating tensions between Israelis and Palestinians resulted in the bloodiest year since the second Intifada and culminated in a 50-day war in Gaza that killed more than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, as well as 67 Israeli soldiers and six civilians in Israel. In the aftermath of the July-August war, tensions remained on edge during a wave of deadly attacks on Jewish civilians, and lethal counter measures by Israeli security forces in the West Bank and Israel.
