Shin Bet: Hopelessness fueling recent Palestinian attacks (STUART WINER November 11, 2015, Times of Israel)

In a report Tuesday summarizing data covering the attacks during the month of October, the Shin Bet concluded that perpetrators largely fit the profile of lone wolf" attackers: young, single, not affiliated with any organization, and with no previous history of security-related incidents.

Despite there being some 60 attacks in October, the assaults show a "lack of organizational-political framework for a clear, coherent conceptual plan of action, or an organized leadership, leading the protests," the report said.

Feelings of national discrimination, as well as economic, personal and psychological problems, provide motivation for the attacks, the report said, and noted that seven of the attackers were women.

"For some terrorists, attacks allow an escape from a bleak reality which they perceive as unchangeable."
