The IDF said that over the last year, it also thwarted over 500 potential attacks.
The military said the counterterrorism effort, named the “Break the Wave Operation,” primarily focused on potential threats in Samaria. The IDF noted it recorded a minimum of 281 attacks and attempted actions so far in 2022, compared to only 91 in 2021. It stated the terrorists tried to harm 239 IDF soldiers and targeted 42 civilians. In addition, the armed forces said it seized over 250 weapons and roughly $785,000 in cash that it believed terrorists would use to fund further activities.

The Palestinian Authority said the Israeli military killed approximately 150 of their citizens. The IDF reported the count at 136.
