Average of 24 Rock Attacks Per Day Since Start of Palestinian Terror Surge in September
Thousands of rock-throwing attacks have been carried out by Palestinians since the start of the current terror wave, Israel’s Channel 2 reported on Wednesday.
Channel 2 marked the September 13 stoning of Alexander Levlovich’s car — and subsequent death of the motorist, who drove into a pole as a result — as the beginning of the surge in Palestinian violence that has been directed at Israelis on a daily basis.
According to the report, in the three months since that date, there have been 2,225 rock attacks — an average of 24 per day.
Following the attack on Levlovich on the even of Rosh Hashanah, another 290 incidents of rock-throwing were carried out in the second half of September. In October, the number rose dramatically — to 915 attacks — and slightly decreased in November, when there were 730. Thus far in December, there have been 290.
