In West Bank, disillusioned young Palestinians are joining new militias

For several months, tensions have been rising in the West Bank. Following a wave of anti-Israeli attacks that killed 19 people in the spring, the Israeli government launched a vast military operation in the area. More than 2,000 people have been arrested and 130 Palestinians killed in raids and clashes, the heaviest toll since the Second Intifada. Operations have been concentrated in the northern West Bank, where more and more young people are joining new armed groups. These groups are popular, have a strong social media following and refuse to accept any political affiliation. The city of Nablus finds itself at their epicentre. FRANCE 24's Gwendoline Debono went to meet some of the young Palestinians who are returning to armed struggle.
