One hundred and twelve terror attacks were perpetrated against Israel in December 2012, according to statistics released by the Shin bet (Israel Security Agency) on Monday.

Eighty-one of the attacks took place in the West Bank, 30 in Jerusalem and one in the Gaza Strip. Of the attacks in the West Bank and Jerusalem, 98 were in the form of firebombs and 6 involved improvised explosive devices. There were also 3 grenade-throwing incidents, 2 small arms shootings, 1 stabbing and 1 hit-and-run.

The attack from Gaza comprised the launching of two mortars into Israel. By comparison, 1,734 rockets and 83 mortar shells were launched at Israel from Gaza during November's eight-day Operation Pillar of Defense, and 116 rockets and 55 mortar shells were fired from Gaza in October.

Three Israeli security personnel were injured in the December attacks; two were stabbed in the same incident in the West Bank and one was run over by a car in Jerusalem.
