Bibi: Terror in Decline Thanks to Proactive Policy

Terrorist attacks against Israelis have decline in recent days. Israel Hayom reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu credits this to the effectiveness of Israel's anti-terror policies:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu credited the recent decline in Palestinian terrorism to proactive steps taken by his government.

Referring to Shin Bet data that shows a significant and steady decrease in the number of Palestinian terrorist attacks, Netanyahu said: "I say this with great caution because this trend could reverse, but we know this [decrease] has been achieved as a result of this government's aggressive, responsible and systematic policy. And I want to commend the IDF, Shin Bet and Israel Police for their implementation of this policy."

The prime minister went on to thank soldiers and police for their alertness, noting that a "combined offensive and defensive effort has led to terrorist elements succeeding less."

"A key factor in the spread of terrorism, in our region and others, is success," Netanyahu said. "If we reduce the success [of terrorists], we reduce the [number of people taking part in terrorism]. This is the main crux of what we are doing and we will continue to do so. At the same time, we will also, of course, continue to take very strong action against the incitement of the Palestinian public."
