Over 1,300 Palestinian terror attacks in ‘West Bank’ since October 7

Sharp rise in Palestinian violence almost completely ignored by Biden administration as it focuses on bogeyman of “Jewish extremism.”

While the Biden administration pays disproportionate attention to isolated incidents of Jewish violence in the so-called “West Bank,” Palestinian Arabs in Judea and Samaria have carried out over 1,300 terrorist attacks in the past two months.

That marks a major escalation in Palestinian terrorist activity. And it is being almost entirely ignored by Western leaders who are eager to “balance” their condemnation of Hamas by creating a bogeyman out of sporadic Jewish extremism.

Data published by Channel 14 News on Monday shows that in the nine weeks since Hamas launched its cross-border attack from the Gaza Strip, an astonishing 1,388 attacks have been carried out by Palestinians in the disputed territories, including 569 cases of rock-throwing, 287 attacks with explosives, 143 Molotov cocktail assaults and 70 terrorist shootings.

Three Israelis—a civilian, a soldier and a Border Police officer—have been murdered in Judea and Samaria since Oct. 7.

In addition, at least 52 Israelis sustained injuries, according to Channel 14. The report said 16 people were wounded by rock-throwing, 10 sustained gunshot wounds, eight were violently attacked by Palestinians, and two were injured in a car-ramming attack.

At least 15 members of the security forces were wounded during counterterrorism raids in Judea and Samaria, while one Israeli was moderately injured as he neutralized a Palestinian terrorist.

In the first six months of 2023, Rescuers Without Borders (Hatzalah Judea and Samaria) recorded a total of 3,640 acts of terror throughout all of Israel. Palestinian terrorists killed 28 people and wounded 362 others between Jan. 1 and July 1, 2023, the emergency service said.

According to a recent survey, 83% of Palestinians in Judea and Samaria support the crimes against humanity committed by Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7.

    Moderate ‘Palestinians’ and their followers don’t exist and neither does US and all nations friendship!

  2. Vernon Ryan says:

    If there had been any real Americans in the left side of American politics, October 7 would probably not have happened. The leftist idea of “diplomacy,” means they are trying to scare up enough money to throw at yet another problem rather than pin the ears back of the terrorists creating the problem.
