There were over 150 terror attacks this past week in Israel which injured 5 Jews as a result.

This week as almost every week there were dozens of terror attacks of varying severity not reported in most major media outlets. We report on these silenced events to present a fuller picture of the reality in Israel and balance the picture presented to innocent readers abroad. 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 week (May 13th- May 19th) there were 151 terror attacks recorded in the ‘Silent Intifada’ updates on Hakol Hayehudi. Among these were shootings, use of explosives, and throwing of firebombs and stones at individuals, vehicles and homes. Six Jews were injured as a result of these attacks.

Two civilians were injured from stone throwing near Baal Hatzor in Binyamin and in Pisgat Zeev in Jerusalem. Four members of security forces were injured during various Arab riots in A-Tur, Issawiya, and Al-Arub.

Two shootings, in which Arabs shot at security forces, took place this past week. On Sunday night May 15th, Arabs shot at IDF forces in Kabatia and on the morning of Tuesday May 17th Arabs shot at IDF forces in Qalandiya. Similarly, on Wednesday night May 19th, Arabs shot from the village of Kalil towards the town of Har Bracha in the Shomron.

There were two attempted stabbings this week. On Shabbat May 14th an Arab was arrested on his way to commit an attack near Mishor Adumim. Intelligence information had indicated his intentions and a knife was found on his person. On Thursday May 19th, a border police officer noticed an Arab acting suspiciously near a bus in Shuafat. The officer followed the suspect onto the bus and found a knife during a search. The suspect admitted to planning to stab police officers near Jaffa Gate.

On Sunday night May 15th, Arabs from Gaza fired rockets at towns in the South, but the rockets landed in the Gaza Strip. On Wednesday May 18th there was a siren alert in Eshkol at night. Residents reported hearing an explosion, but the IDF spokesman claimed the alert was an error.

Arabs also set fires in several locations, which was particularly dangerous due to the dry weather conditions early in the week. Fires were set near Hebrew University on Mount Scopus, near an IDF post in Har Bracha, in Pisgat Zeev, in Kiryat Arba, and in several other locations.

Additional attacks included throwing of stones and firebombs at vehicles, riots against security forces, throwing of explosives at Rachel’s Tomb and other attacks.
