Palestinians Prevent Terrorism

Palestinian security forces thwarted 80 planned terrorist attacks against Israel in 1995, according to the head of Israel’s domestic security service.

In a semiannual appearance before the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, the head of the Shin Bet said there had been a sharp drop in the number of terrorist attacks after the May 1994 signing of the agreement for establishing Palestinian autonomy in the Gaza Strip and West Bank Jericho enclave.
