The number of fatalities from car bombs, rocket attacks, and knife attacks in Israel over the past five years has more than doubled, according to an annual report by a New York-based nonprofit organization.
The report, titled “Violence in Israel: A Report on the Human Cost,” said the total number of Israeli deaths was 7,764 in 2017.
The latest report comes amid the ongoing wave of unrest in the Palestinian territories.
More than 400 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed in violent attacks and car bombings since October, when Israel launched its ground offensive in the Gaza Strip.
It has also led to several deaths in the West Bank.
The death tolls for the five years of the last count is 7,852.
According to the report, more than 1,100 Israelis have been injured, with 1,094 civilians and 569 soldiers.
The number is significantly higher than in the same period last year.
During that period, Israel carried out 2,766 attacks, according the report.
The numbers also reflect a spike in the number of car bombings, with the number now estimated at about 1,800 per month.
The uptick in car bombs and rocket attacks has been attributed to an uptick in the popularity of extremist groups and terrorist organizations.
Israel’s government has blamed Hamas and other groups for the increased violence.
The United States, which has criticized Israel’s policies, has also condemned the uptick in violence.
