Again, look how the Washington Post AND the New York Times refer to casualties in the Arab-Israeli conflict in the same manner:

"According to a count by The Washington Post, more than 27 Israelis have been killed in knife, gun and vehicular attacks; more than 160 Palestinians have been shot dead by Israeli forces, 110 while carrying out attacks and 50 during clashes."   So notice that Palestinian deaths are justified because Palestinians were either carrying on attacks or "during clashes".  But the latter one is rather odd: if they died during "clashes" how come none of the Israelis ever die during "clashes"?  Israelis, unlike Palestinians, are simply killed.
