Still Keeping Count - Attacks On Israel In January, 2011

The broad data regarding terrorist attacks against Israel launched from the West Bank, Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip by Arabs in January 2011 are as follows:

  • There were 30 attacks launched from the Gaza Strip (as opposed to 38 in December). There were 12 rocket attacks comprising 17 launched rockets (15 in December), 13 mortar shell attacks comprising 26 shells in all (38 shells in December), 3 small arms shootings, one AT launching and one explosive device

  • There were 20 attacks in Jerusalem (as opposed to 18 in December). There were 2 grenade attacks and 18 Molotov cocktail throwings.

In Jerusalem and the West Bank most of the attacks executed in January (47 out of 53) were in the form of firebombs (December had 33 out of 36).

What follows is a daily account of attacks launched against Israel from the Gaza Strip that can be researched through several different sources including The Jerusalem Post, Ynet News, Haaretz, UPI, Associated Press, BBC News, Christian Science Monitor, Gulf News, Walla News (Hebrew), AFP, CBN, Aurora News (Spanish), the IDF, Kuwait News Agency, Irish Times, CNN, Indian Express, JTA, Ma’an News, Reuters (various divisions), Nana (Hebrew), The Palestine Telegraph and other news sources and Wikipedia.

1st. January 2011 - Four mortar shells
2nd. January - a Projectile of an unknown type hit in the Eshkol Regional Council area
4th. January - One Qassam rocket
5th. January - Seven mortar shells. One Qassam rocket
6th. January - One mortar shell
7th. January - a Projectile of an unknown type was fired into Israel
8th. January - Five mortar shells. Two Qassam rockets

At about 2:20 pm on Saturday, 8th. January, 2011, Palestinian Arabs in the Gaza Strip fired four 181-millimeter mortar shells at Israel, all of which landed in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council area. One of the shells hit a residential area within an agricultural community. Three Thai foreign agricultural workers were injured, one seriously, one moderately and one lightly, all by shrapnel. A number of other people suffered from shock. Palestinian Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility, saying that it had fired six mortar shells at an Israeli military post near Nahal Oz. Towards the evening, an additional Palestinian mortar shell landed in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council. No injuries or damage were reported. After nightfall, Palestinians fired a Qassam rocket which landed in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council. No injuries or damage were reported. Palestinians fired a second Qassam rocket into the Eshkol Regional Council. Truck driver Yitzhak Zaafrani was lightly wounded in the face and his truck was damaged.


9th. January - One Qassam rocket
10th. January - Four Qassam rockets

11th. January - One rocket

16th. January - Three mortar shells
17th. January - One Qassam rocket
18th. January - Four mortar shells

21st. January - One mortar shell

25th. January - Two Qassam rockets

31st. January - Three rockets (one Qassam and two Grads)

Just imagine living in a free, open and democratic country and having to put up with these sort of attacks in these sort of numbers day after day after day. The surprising thing is that Israelis are still a nice and tolerant people - I know that I wouldn't be!
