Terror attacks have, as of late, diminished in Israel, compared to the wave that had hit the Holy Land over the past year and a half. But Israel cannot become complacent, reports The Jerusalem Post’s Arik Bender, as the Shin Bet has warned of Hamas attacks ahead of the upcoming Passover holiday:

The head of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) Nadav Argaman warned on Monday morning that despite the current relative calm, Hamas and other terrorists entities may attempt to carry out attacks ahead of the upcoming Passover holiday.

“The relative calm that we are experiencing at this time is quite deceiving, it’s misleading and deluding because Hamas and global jihadi infrastructure are working every day in attempt to conduct terror attacks in Israeli territory,” he stated at a meeting of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

Argaman added, however, that “our goal is to ensure that the holidays are as quite as possible.”

“We are engaged day and night in thwarting attacks,” he said. “We have stopped more than 400 potential hazards before they materialized into terrorist attacks…”
