More than 5,500 attacks on Jews in Israel in first half of 2013

( Figures released by Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron, a volunteer emergency medical response organization in Israel, show that there were 5,635 attacks in the first half of 2013 against Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria, Jerusalem, and the greater Jerusalem region.

Among these attacks, 611 involved molotov cocktails and 5,144 were rock attacks. Eight attacks involved guns and knives. One death and 171 injuries resulted from the attacks.

Hatzalah spokeswoman Yehudit Tayar said, “If there is spray painting on the side of a mosque or an Arab’s tires are slashed it is on the news, but violence against us is ignored… Can you imagine being attacked on a consistent basis and it not even being reported?”

“We have to get the truth out,” she said, according to the Algemeiner.
