Significant Drop in Terror Attacks Reported In November

December 16, 2016

The Israeli Security Agency (Shabak), also known as the Shin Bet, reported a 38 percent drop in terror attacks in November when compared to the previous month. This was largely due to a 72 percent drop in the attacks in the capital, Jerusalem.

A total of 95 attacks, including 72 firebomb attacks, were reported in November compared to 153 in October. The drop in the number of attacks was most evident in Jerusalem, where there were nine attacks, compared to 48 in October. In Judea and Samaria, 84 attacks were reported in November, as opposed to 103 in October.

There were no rocket or mortars fired at Israel in November as compared to two attacks that originated from the Gaza Strip in October.

The November attacks resulted in one casualty.  A security officer was slightly injured in a shooting attack at an IDF checkpoint near Tulkarm on November 3. This was a significant improvement over October, when 23 Israelis were wounded and two were killed.

According to Israeli government statistics, since 13 September 2015, 42 people have been killed in terrorist attacks and 577 people (including 4 Palestinians) injured.

According to recent article in Ma’an News, the Palestinian news service, 235 Palestinians were killed in the last year. Out of this number, two Palestinians were killed in attacks by Palestinians. Two more were killed by themselves while carrying out attacks, so their deaths cannot be attributed to Israeli security.

The statistics do not include rock-throwing or arson attacks.
