Jerusalem: Israeli Bus Driver Injured in Firebombing Attack
Egged bus scene of terror attack

Such attacks occur on a daily basis and usually go unreported because there are usually no critical injuries.

An Israeli bus driver was injured in Jerusalem on Monday night when an Arab terrorist threw a firebomb at the bus the victim was driving near Har Hazofim (Mount Scopus).

United Hatzalah volunteers and an ambulance team treated the driver for light injuries. After receiving initial treatment at the scene, he was transported to the hospital by a United Hatzalah ambulance.

None of the passengers were harmed in the attack.

The bus drivers’ organization in Israel stated after the attack that “buses are a state symbol and are therefore attacked and the drivers and passengers pay a heavy price. Bus terror must stop immediately.”

This attack was one of multiple rock and firebomb attacks perpetrated by Arab terrorists against Israelis in Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria on Monday.

Such attacks occur on a daily basis and usually go unreported because there are usually no critical injuries.

In 2021, as of mid-December, Arab terrorists carried out 6,633 terrorist attacks in Judea and Samaria alone, of which 61 were shootings, 18 were stabbings, 1,022 were fire bombings, 5,532 were rock-throwing attacks, a sharp increase over the numbers in recent years.

The data published by the IDF show that in the past year there has been a 38% increase in stone-throwing incidents, a 36% increase in the number of Molotov cocktail attacks, and twice as many stabbing incidents as in the previous year, with an average of 18 attacks every day.

These numbers do not include attacks from the Gaza Strip, including the 11-day Operation Guardian of the Walls in May, or attacks in other parts of Israel. The number of rock-throwing and firebombing attacks was probably higher than what the IDF registered as many of them go unreported.
