A significant attack is defined by the ITIC as involving shooting, stabbing, a vehicle, the use of IEDs, or a combination of the above. Stones and Molotov cocktails thrown by Palestinians are not included.
On July 15, 2014, at the height of Operation Protective Edge, a number of rockets were fired at Eilat. Two of them landed in the city, one of the near a hotel. Another landed in a residential neighborhood. The military-terrorist wing of the Jerusalem Battalions, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), claimed responsibility for the firing the two rockets. At the time it was unclear whether PIJ operatives did, in fact, fire the rockets.
The statistics do not include mortar shell fire or rockets which misfired and fell inside the Gaza Strip.
