Violence in Jerusalem continues to snowball, according to a report Tuesday - and most of the incidents are in what is defined as peacetime. 

A total of 995 terror attacks against the Border Police, SWAT teams, and undercover officers were recorded throughout 2014 and through April 2015, according to Walla! News. Just 30% of the attacks were perpetrated during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza. 

Of those,  823 incidents was recorded during 2014 and 172 from January 2015 until April 26, 2015. Hundreds of police have been injured in these clashes, and one policeman - Border Police Superintendent Jedan Assaddied in a car rampage attack last year. 

The police are the new front lines in the war on terror, according to this report. In the 16-month period, 814 Molotov cocktails have been thrown at Border Police - 666 in 2014 and 148 in 2015 thus far - and 142 explosive devices have been thrown (127 in 2014 and 15 in 2015). 

Seventeen shooting incidents have unfolded involving the Border Police, with 16 in 2014 and one this year. 

A total of seven stabbing attempts or attacks have been made, three in 2014 and four in 2015; and a total of 15 "car rampage" attacks (attempted or actualized) have been launched, 11 in 2014 and four in 2015.
