The Second Intifada

The Second Intifada

The second intifada was more deadly than the first. Suicide bombings became a regular occurrence in Israel. No one was safe from terrorists, not even innocent Arab bystanders. Over 1,000 Israelis were murdered in terrorist attacks during this period.

In one deadly episode, two IDF soldiers accidentally entered the Palestinian town of Ramallah, where they were arrested by Palestinian police and attacked by an angry mob that stormed the Palestinian police station in Ramallah. On October 12, 2000, First Corporal Yosef Avrahami and First Sergeant Vadim Norzhich—both 33-year-old reservists—were severely beaten, mutilated, and ultimately lynched.
