However, as we have seen in recent weeks, there has been an uptick in shooting incidents as opposed to stabbings and car rammings.
The number of people killed also went up in January - 5 murdered, versus 3 in December.
This is still better than the 10 murdered in November and 11 in October.
For those wondering, Shin Bet also counts extremist Jewish terror attacks: 4 in October, none in November, one in December (an attack on a house in Ramallah) and one in January (setting an Arab owned car wash on fire.)
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
