The Hevron/Kiryat Arba region in Judea south of Jerusalem had been a hotbed of stabbing and car ramming attacks over the past several months, but terrorist incidents had significantly decreased in the past few weeks.

The recent "wave of terror" has calmed down considerably overall throughout Israel, but Arab terrorists have still conducted periodic attacks, including the recent murder of four people at Tel Aviv's Sarona Market.

More recently, three people were injured last week in a rock-throwing attack which targeted a bus traveling through Jerusalem.
