Shin Bet: 228 attacks since October, mostly in West Bank

The Shin Bet security service says there have been 228 attacks or attempted attacks against Israelis between October 1, 2015, and February 10, 2016, the lion’s share of them in the West Bank.

The agency says 169 attacks took place in the West Bank, 37 in Jerusalem, and another 22 in Israel proper, in statistics it has released.

Similarly, 174 of the attackers hailed from the West Bank, while only nine are Israelis and 36 are from Jerusalem. A full 40% of the West Bank attackers are from the Hebron area.

The numbers also show that 155 of the attackers were between the ages of 16 and 25. An additional 22 attackers have been below the age of sixteen.

All but 24 have been men.

The Shin Bet says the stats only count “significant attacks.”
