Monthly Summary – March 2013
March 2013 saw a decline in the number of terror attacks: 125 attacks as opposed to 139 in February.
The decline is due to a drop in the number of attacks in the area of Jerusalem: 21 attacks compared to 38 in February.  As for the number of attacks in Judea and Samaria it stayed relatively the same: 101 attacks, compared to 100 in February.
