While noting a decline in terror, Netanyahu announced a multi-year plan to strengthen security in Jerusalem and implement equality in law enforcement in Israeli-Arab society.
Due to strong, determined Israeli policy and the alertness of security forces, there has been a significant reduction in the frequency of Palestinian terror attacks, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the weekly Cabinet meeting Sunday morning.
“Today the Cabinet will hear an ISA [Israel Security Agency/Shin Bet] briefing that shows a significant decline in the scope of terrorist attacks,” he stated. “I say this with great caution because this trend could reverse itself, but we know that it has been achieved up to now as a result of the government’s strong, responsible and methodical policy.”
Netanyahu commended the IDF, Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Israel Police for their efforts, which have reduced the terrorists’ success rate, resulting in a decline in attacks.
“The main element leading the spread of terrorism, both here and elsewhere, is success,” he said. “To the extent that we reduce the success rate, we reduce the number of those joining, and this is the main thing that we are doing, along with – of course – very strong actions against the incitement of the Palestinian public.”
The Israeli leader announced a multi-year plan for strengthening security in Jerusalem and the implementation of equality in law enforcement. “We want a single nation of law without enclaves in which the law is not upheld. We also want to reduce other gaps in society at large and in Israeli-Arab society,” he said.
