Israel sees violence from Palestinians on a near-daily basis in Judea and Samaria, which usually takes the form of the stoning of passing cars. However, knife attacks and car rammings are not uncommon.

On Dec. 20, in a particularly horrific attack, an Arab terrorist bludgeoned a Jewish woman to death with a rock near the the settlement of Tal Manashe, located at the northwestern edge of Judea and Samaria. The woman, Esther Horgan, 52, leaves behind a husband and six children.

The terrorist was caught and admitted to the crime.
