Arab attacked Jews 157 time in eastern Jerusalem in the month of March, according to a report on Galei Tzahal. Those attacks included stone throwing and firebomb attacks.
That was up from 150 attacks in February, 120 attacks against Jews in January and 140 in December.
For the last year and a half there were no less than 80 attacks against Jews – every month.
80% of the attacks involved stone throwing and 2% involved firebombs. Most ended without injury.
The majority of the attacks happened in the Old City, the City of David and on or near the Mount of Olives.
These attacks were reported by a private security agency, hired by the Ministry of Building and Construction, to protect Jews in eastern Jerusalem, as for some reason police presence in these high-violence areas is minimal.
JewishPress.com has been reporting for the past few years on the multitude of attacks against Jewish visitors to the Mount of Olives and adjoining areas.
Meanwhile, despite putting all their priorities and efforts into it, the police have had no success finding the “price tag” graffiti vandals.
