Palestinians are not the ones to blame here. If we need to get into the open air prison that has been created, the people killed, land stolen, Balfour Declaration we can.. but anyways. They are trying to kill off the Sephardic Jews. Divide and Conquer - Not much we don't know here in the article, but the idea is going around.

The number of attacks in Israel and the West Bank has tripled since President Donald Trump’s announcement to relocate the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, according to new figures.

Israel’s Shin Bet, the country’s domestic security agency, said that there were 249 attacks in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza during December.

This number was compared to 84 attacks in November and 71 in October. The Shin Bet released the new figures this week, according to the Times of Israel.

Both of the victims were wounded. The Jerusalem attacker said Trump’s announcement was the reason for his attack, while the Ramallah attacker died of his wounds after being shot by Israeli forces at the scene, so his exact motive remains unclear.

Between November and December, West Bank attacks rose from 53 to 178; Gaza attacks, which included rocket launches, increased from one to 15; and in Jerusalem attacks rose from 29 to 56.

Palestinian militant group Hamas called for a new Palestinian intifada, or uprising, after Trump’s announcement, demanding that Palestinians “go out in anger” and battle to protect the city from Israeli control.

Despite the apparent increase in attacks in the final month of the year, 2017 as a whole saw low levels of assaults by Palestinians and of Israeli victims compared with recent years. The number of significant attacks in the West Bank dropped to 99 in 2017 from 269 in 2016. The number of Israelis injured in attacks also dropped, from 263 in 2016 to 169 in 2017, according to the Israeli military.
