The Israel Security Agency’s report on terror attacks during January 2023 shows that throughout the month a total of 251 incidents took place: 187 in Judea & Samaria, 61 in Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ and three in the Gaza Strip sector.
In Judea & Samaria, Jerusalem and inside the ‘green line’ the agency recorded 158 attacks with petrol bombs, 49 attacks using pipe bombs, 24 shooting attacks, twelve arson attacks, four stabbing attacks and one vehicular attack. In the Gaza Strip sector two incidents involving the launch of eight rockets and one incident of anti-aircraft fire were recorded.
Seven people were murdered and ten people were wounded in attacks during January.
The January 27th shooting attack in Neve Ya’akov which resulted in the deaths of seven civilians and the wounding of three others was reported on the BBC News website, notably without the personal details of the victims.
The January 28th shooting attack in Ir David in which two people were wounded was also covered by the BBC.
A petrol bomb attack in Bethlehem on January 7th which a member of the security forces was injured, a stabbing attack in the south Hebron hills (Yatir) area on January 11th in which a civilian was injured, a shooting attack near Tulkarem on January 23rd in which a member of the security forces was injured and a vehicular attack at the Tapuach Junction on January 31st in which two members of the security forces were wounded did not receive any BBC coverage.
Two reports on an unrelated topic (here and here) mentioned an attempted infiltration into the community of Kedumim by an armed Fatah operative on the night of January 28th/29th and an incident in Hebron on January 30th in which a driver ordered to stop for inspection ran over a soldier’s foot.
On January 27th the BBC News website reported that six rockets had been fired overnight from the Gaza Strip in two salvos.
A BBC News website report published towards the end of January told audiences that throughout the month some 30 Palestinians had been killed, describing them as “both militants and civilians”. A report published at the beginning of February stated that “more than 30 Palestinians” had been killed in January. Details of those incidents (and the fact that the majority of those killed were engaged in violence or carrying out attacks at the time or members of terrorist groups) can be found in the ITIC’s weekly reports: Jan 1 – 3, Jan 4 – 10, Jan 11 – 17, Jan 18 – 24 , Jan 25 – 31.
