For Palestinians trying to avoid being suspected of involvement in a monthslong wave of deadly attacks against Israelis, small changes in behavior might mean the difference between life and death.As a result, Israeli security forces – whether the army, the police or the paramilitary border police, all of whom have been targeted – are on high alert for an attack from just about anyone, especially in tense areas around Jerusalem's Old City.Since the violence began, 193 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli security forces or armed citizens, including 124 that Israel has identified as attackers or potential attackers. While Israelis are on edge, many Palestinians are too. Many Palestinians also stand apart from Israelis on crosswalks.
