Palestinian Violence Continues to Escalate in Jerusalem

Palestinian perpetrated anti-police violence continues to rise in the capital of Israel, according to a report in Walla!.

Jerusalem has been inundated with nearly 1,000 attacks against Israeli Police and Border Patrol officers by Palestinians from East Jerusalem and the surrounding townships. Since January 2014, the number of attacks stands at 995, with most of them occurring during ‘peacetime’.

The report indicated that only 30 percent of these attacks occurred during Operation Protective Edge last summer, a time of heightened conflict in Jerusalem, following the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers and the kidnapping and murder of a Palestinian Jerusalem teen.

The period around last summer was particularly tense. In addition to the war, vehicular terrorism became a commonplace occurrence, with Israeli civilians being killed while waiting at bus and trains stops in and around Jerusalem. Violence against Israeli police was particularly high as well as violence on and around the Temple Mount.

According to the report, 814 Molotov cocktails and 142 explosive devices were thrown at police as well. Vehicular terrorism as well as stabbing attacks have steadily increased dramatically compared to previous years.

This year alone, 172 violent incidents have already been recorded from January 1 until April 26.

Palestinian insurgents have not curtailed their aggressive and violent behavior. With more violent occurrences happening on average multiple times per day, the insurgents are getting bolder, not quieter.
