ISA data shows 602 attacks in 30 days – more than during Operation Protective Edge (2014), Operation Pillar of Defense (2012), or Operation Cast Lead (2009).

In fact, there are whole years in which the number of attacks did not reach this amount: in 2010 there were 455 attacks total, and in 2011 there were 511 attacks.
The number of victims in October alone was abnormally high relative to recent years – 11 Israelis were killed, compared with five in all of 2013, for example; 80 civilians and security personnel were injured – compared with 63 in all of 2014, and 42 wounded in 2013.
