However, in April 2002, in a series of brutal revenge attacks, the Israel Defense Forces [IDF] brought war into the center of a series of Palestinian towns, villages and refugee camps. Fighting within the entire spectrum of urban conditions – a modern city in Ramallah, a holy city in Bethlehem, a historical Kasbah in Nablus and a series of dense and desperately poor refugee camps, it had both unearthed historical methods of colonial “pacification,” and inaugurated new technologies and doctrines that may prove to transform the nature of war. Indeed during the so called “Operation Defensive Shield,” the West Bank has become a giant laboratory of urban warfare, in which a new relation between war and the city, planners and soldiers has been experimented with, with the loss of hundreds of civilian lives, to say nothing of property and infrastructure.
