• On June 30 and July 1, 2016, towards the end of the Muslim religious month of Ramadan, there was series of stabbing and shooting attacks in which two Israelis were killed: a drive-by shooting attack on Route 60, south of Hebron (July 1); a stabbing attack in Kiryat Arba where a 13 year-old girl was murdered in her sleep (June 30); and two stabbing attacks in Hebron (June 30 and July 1)
  • In As in the previous wave of terrorist attacks, the Hebron region was the focal point for attacks and a base for attackers. Five days before the attack in Kiryat Arba on June 30, the Palestinian terrorist who carried it out posted a notice to his Facebook page hinting he planned a terrorist attack in which he would sacrifice himself.
