Terror attacks increase during Ramadan

Tuesday, June 30, 2015 |  Israel Today Staff

4 Israelis were wounded, one seriously and the others in moderate condition, in a terrorist shooting attack at the Shvut Rachel Junction in the Binyamin region overnight. This is the 6th terror attack in 10 days of Ramadan.

It was not immediately clear if the incident was a drive-by shooting or if an ambush had been set up by the perpetrators. The IDF set up checkpoints and roadblocks in the vicinity immediately after the attack in order to attempt to cut off their escape route and started intensive searches for the terrorists.

Apart from the fact that this is the 6th terrorist attack in the 10 days of Ramadan, this is the 4th attack in 4 days. The last one was the stabbing of a female IDF soldier in the neck by a female Arab yesterday morning at the Tomb of Rachel checkpoint near Bethlehem.

After the arrest of the 20 year-old attacker yesterday morning, she was found to be carrying two more knives in her belongings and under interrogation admitted that she arrived at the checkpoint with the intention of killing a soldier.
