Silent Intifada Weekly Summary: 440 Terror Attacks

This past week as almost every week there were dozens of terror attacks of varying severity. Unlike most weeks though, many of these attacks actually were reported in the mainstream Israeli media. Nonetheless they did fail to report on several of the incidents. We hope that by reporting these incidents we can raise awareness so that actions can be taken to rectify this problem and improve reality in the Jewish State.

This past week (Fri. Oct 2nd- Thursday Oct. 8th) there were over 440 terror attacks recorded in the ‘Silent Intifada’ updates on Hakol Hayehudi. Among these were stabbings and almost a dozen shootings which left two Jews murdered and 59 injured. In addition there were incidents of IEDs (improvised explosive devices) thrown, arson to fields, and hundreds of incidents of stone throwing and firebombs at vehicles and homes.

The incidents occurred throughout Israel including in Jaffa, Haifa, Lod, Krayot, Tel Aviv, Petach Tikvah, Afula, Nazareth, Akko, Eyal Junction on Route 6, Taybe Bridge in the Sharon, Kiryat Gat, Ashkelon, Tamra in the Galilee, Hura in the Negev, Beer Sheva, Umm al Fahm, Jerusalem, Shomron, Binyamin, Jordan Valley, Hevron Hills, and Gush Etzion.

Motzei Shabbat (Oct. 3rd) Rabbi Nechemia Lavi and Aharon Benita were murdered in a stabbing attack by an Arab in the Old City of Jerusalem. The attack also injured a woman and a baby. The terrorist was killed. Later the same night, a 15 year old Jew was stabbed on Chaim Bar Lev street in Jerusalem.

In total there were 7 stabbing attacks and five other attempted stabbings that were not successful, Thank G-d. In the Old City, two Jews were injured when an Arab woman stabbed them.
