Violence, particularly knife attacks, have made the tense region unstable recently. To date, seven Israelis and more than 30 Palestinians have died in the violence.
Earlier this month, Amnesty International released a statement condemning attacks on civilians on both sides of the conflict and urged Israeli forces to hold Israelis who have attacked Palestinians accountable. (Video via Amnesty Inernational)

"We will continue to support Israel's right to defend its existence. It is critically important, though, that calm be restored as soon as possible," Secretary of State John Kerry said.
Kerry is expected to travel to the Middle East soon to ease some of the conflict.
