Palestinian Authority - Conflict - Second Intifada in Ramallah
At the start of the Second Intifada, young Palestinians hurl stones at Tzahal, the Israel Defense Forces. The word of Intifada was first widely used to describe the popular uprising of Palestinian refugees against their situation in 1987, when the political, diplomatic peace process had failed to improve their living conditions in what since the Six-Day War had been referred to as Israeli occupied territory, that is, the West Bank of the river Jordan and the Gaza Strip. The Oslo peace process began as the international community responded to the Intifada. However, following the establishment of the Palestinian National Authority in 1993,the expected progress towards full sovereignty did not follow nor, according to many, did the living conditions of the Palestinians improve. The second Intifada erupted in 2000 following the visit to the Temple Mount of Sharon
