With the murder of a 39-year-old mother of six in Otniel in southern Judea on Sunday, the death toll in the current wave of Arab terrorism has risen to 29 murdered.

The first to be murdered in the terror wave was Alexander Levlovitz, who was murdered on September 13, Rosh Hashanah Eve. Levlovitz was murdered by Arab terrorists who hurled rocks through his window and made him lose control of his car as he drove in the southeastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv where he lived. 

On Sunday the toll rose to 29 as Dafna Meir was stabbed to death at her home in Otniel, in the southern Har Hevron region, by an Arab terrorist who worked in the town. The terrorist fled the scene, leaving the woman to die in front of her children, and security forces continue to scour the area for him.

Figures show that a full 318 people have been wounded in the terror wave since it began last September, with that figure comprising of 29 murdered and 289 wounded to various degrees.

Magen David Adom (MDA) medical teams have also treated over 105 victims suffering from shock, after having witnessed terror attacks.

While most of the wounded suffered from stabbing, shooting or car ramming attacks, there have been daily rock attacks - as of mid-December 2,225 rock attacks were recorded from the time of Levlovitz's murder, making an average of 24 rock attacks a day.
