There appear to be 4 references to a 3.5 year time period: The abomination of desolation (midst of the week), The protection of the Woman who Gives Birth (Rev. 12:6 a thousand two hundred and threescore days), The Beast rising (Rev 13:5 forty and two months) and the Two Witnesses (Rev.11 a thousand two hundred and threescore days)Are all of these events going to occur at the same time?

There are four references cited in your question: 1) The Abomination of Desolation, 2) The protection of the woman, 3) The Beast rising, and 4) The two witnesses.  All four of these are said to last 3 1/2 years.

There is no question according to Daniel 9:27 - the Abomination of Desolation (AOD) happens at the middle of Daniel's 70th Week.  So, there are remaining 3 1/2 years after the AOD.  According to 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 - which we know describes the AOD, this is when the Antichrist will set himself up as God to be worshipped.  This would explain the persecution of the Woman.  Furthermore, the persecution of the woman and the rising of the beast follow the casting down of Satan "knowing he only has a short time." Therefore, it would stand to reason that the 3 1/2 years attached to these two events would have to be the latter half of the 70th Week.

The two witnesses also endure persecution which, like the woman and the beast, would necessitate that it happen after the Antichrist has come to full power.  All of these events are recounted at the interlude after the 7th trumpet has sounded which would also seem to indicate that they would not happen in the first half of the 70th week.
