April 30, 2013. Palestinians help a wounded man during clashes with Jewish settlers near the Jewish settlement of Yitzhar, near Nablus. In the West Bank, a Palestinian man fatally stabbed an Israeli waiting at a bus stop and fired on police before he was detained by Israeli security forces, officials said.

From clashes in the West Bank and election preparations in Pakistan to the legalization of gay marriage in Colorado and battles against wildfires in California, TIME presents the best pictures of the week.
