Several incidents over the weekend highlighted the increasing Arab violence directed at Israelis in and around Jerusalem. According to Israel Today.

On Sunday evening, a bus traveling north from Jerusalem was damaged when a stone thrown by Palestinians managed to penetrate the bulletproof glass.

Also on the outskirts of Jerusalem, Israeli security forces in at least three separate incidents caught would-be Arab assailants in possession of pipe bombs.

Israeli security officials have noted a significant rise in the number of attacks in and around Jerusalem in which assailants  use such weaponry, as opposed to the more traditional guns and knives.
