2023’s Victims Of Terror In Israel: An Incomplete List



After the atrocities of October 7, all the previous terror attacks on innocent civilians in Israel were tragically pushed aside in our collective memory. While the attention obviously focused heavily on what happened in October, we should never forget the lives that were taken throughout the calendar year. When people clamor for a “Free Palestine,” remember that they cheer the death of Jews in the Land of Israel.

This list is limited to terrorist attacks that resulted in at least one death. This does not include numerous attacks where there were no casualties. The source for this list is the Jewish Virtual Library.
