Since September 2015, Israel has experienced a relentless wave of Palestinian terrorism in which nearly 450 terrorist attacks have been perpetrated. Most have been carried out by young individuals, fuelled by incitement to hatred.
This past Sunday, an Israeli civilian and father of 4 children, Ari Fuld, joined the list of victims of terrorism in the last 3 years. Since October 2015, 69 innocent people have been killed in terrorist attacks in Israel and the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) and more than 1,000 people have been injured.
A total of 195 stabbing attacks, 202 shooting attacks, and 68 hit-and-run attacks have been carried out. The first of this wave of attacks were carried out on 1 October 2015 when Rabbi Eitam Henkin and his wife Naama were killed in front of their four children after Palestinian terrorists fired on the car in which they were traveling.
In addition, at least 730 rockets have been fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip since September 2015. Between July and August of this year alone, more than 350 rockets were fired into Israeli territory.
Likewise, since “Return Marches” began near the Gaza-Israel border, it has initiated a new type of terrorism among Palestinians in which they send kites and incendiary balloons to communities in southern Israel. These attacks have led to nearly 1,400 fires that have caused major economic and environmental losses in the south of the country.
