Four and-a-half months into the terror wave, Israel's Magen David Adom ambulance service has summarized some of the period's key statistics.

MDA chose the September 13, Rosh Hashana attack, in which the 64-year-old grandfather Alexander Levlovitz was killed, as the starting date of the current round of violence.

Terrorists caused Levlovitz's death in Jerusalem after he lost control of his vehicle on the night of September 13 when its windshield was shattered by a rock thrown from an overpass in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood while he was driving home with his two daughters.

Since the Levlovitz attacks and until February 1, 30 Israelis have been killed and 301 have been wounded, MDA reported. Twenty seven of the wounded were wounded seriously, eight moderately to seriously, 46 moderately, 11 moderately to lightly, and 209 were lightly wounded. 

MDA emergency teams treated victims in 91 rock throwing incidents, 83 stabbing incidents, 22 vehicle ramming attacks, and 15 shootings. 

Palestinian media has reported that 167 Palestinians have been killed in the current round of violence, including 34 minors. Israeli security forces have arrested 3,500 Palestinians and 1,420 Palestinians have been injured, according to the Palestinian sources.

A high profile attack at the beginning of the current round of violence was the October 1 shooting of Eitam and Na'ama Henkin near the West Bank Palestinian village of Beit Furik.

The couple, who was shot dead by a Palestinian terrorist while driving home, left behind four young children who survived without injury in the bullet-riddled vehicle.

On October 3, Rabbi Nehemia Lavi, 41, and Aharon Benita, 22, were murdered in a terrorist attack in the Old City of Jerusalem. In the attack, a Palestinian terrorist murdered the two Jewish men in a stabbing spree and wounded a mother and son.  

On October 10, two Jewish men were stabbed to death, and three others were seriously wounded, in a gun and knife attack on an Egged bus in the capital’s southeastern Armon Hanatziv neighborhood. On the same day an Israeli was killed by wounds suffered in a car ramming and stabbing attack in the capital.

On November 19, a Palestinian terrorist armed with a knife murdered two Israelis and moderately wounded a third during a rampage in a southern Tel Aviv office building. 

On January 1, a terrorist who went on a shooting rampage in Tel Aviv killed three Israelis.
