Following is a distribution of attacks in July 2016 according to regions:
The Gaza Strip – one attack: rocket launching.
Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem – 100 attacks: 19 IED (including pipe bombs and improvised grenade) (1 in Jerusalem); 6 small arms shooting; 1 stabbing; 1 run over; 73 firebombs (22 in Jerusalem).
High-trajectory launchings from Gaza Strip and Sinai
Throughout July 2016 two rockets were launched** from the Gaza Strip towards Israel (within one attacks), as opposed to June in which no rockets or mortar shells were launched** towards Israel.
**Clarification: The number of launchings is the number of rockets/mortar shells actually launched during one high-trajectory fire attack. For example: one attack may include a salvo of three launchings, that is, three rockets/ mortar shells, and so it will be counted as one attack and three launchings.
