Israel: 560 'Significant' Terror Attacks Thwarted in 2019
Israel’s internal security agency says it has thwarted over 560 “significant” terror plots, including suicide attacks, in the past year. Speaking this week at an award ceremony honoring operational and intelligence achievements in 2019, Shin Bet Director Nadav Argaman said the attacks were aimed against Israeli civilians and infrastructure. "This past year was full of security challenges on all fronts," said Argaman. "We foiled 10 suicide attacks, four abductions and over 300 shootings." PM Netanyahu, who attended the ceremony, in his speech focused primarily on the “Iranian threat,” which he said poses both a “nuclear and terror” challenge. “We must overcome it just like we overcame the great threat of Pan-Arabism,” he said. "Our determination to fight for our future and to defeat our enemies must be much stronger than theirs. The lives of hundreds of Israelis, perhaps more, were saved by your Shin Bet activity,” he said. The prime minister added that “many” countries in the world now want to cooperate with Israeli intelligence agencies. "Everyone wants cooperation with Israeli intelligence. We are in a time of unprecedented political, economic, operational and military prosperity." (Worthy News)
