“Hundreds of terror attacks” thwarted in Israel

Chief of Israel’s internal security agency said on Monday that “hundreds of terror attacks” have been thwarted in Israel during 2019.

In a rare public remark, Nadav Argaman, head of the Shin Bet security service, said that his agency foiled over 560 terror attacks, including ten suicide attacks, four kidnapping attacks, and over 300 shooting attacks.

“The past year was filled with security challenges on all the fronts in which we operate,” said Argaman.

Israel has been facing a wave of “lone wolf” attacks by Palestinians, including mainly stabbing and shooting attacks, that broke out in 2014 after the collapse of the peace talks.
