Wave of Terror

This special spotlight section brings together all our analysis, updates, podcasts and videos on the current wave of Palestinian terrorism and the policy challenges it poses to Israeli decision makers.

Since September 2015, Israel has experienced a wave of attacks against its citizens. BICOM is trying to decipher the trends and patterns of this violence which, while frequent, appear to be largely decentralised and involving relatively small numbers which makes its trajectory difficult to predict. This spotlight section offers analysis, updates and multimedia resources on this issue.
