Palestinians Prevent Terrorism

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

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.
