In 2015, Israel saw a 284 percent increase in the number of injuries resulting from terror attacks compared to 2014, even though the number of actual attacks slightly lessened, according to figures released by the Shin Bet on Tuesday.

A total of 239 people were wounded in terror attacks in 2015, compared to 63 the year before, the agency said. The majority of the 2015 injuries, 174 of them, occurred in the final three months of the year, as part of the wave of violence that continues to rock the country.
