Economic Minister Says Israel’s Intelligence Helped 30 Countries Thwart Terror Attacks In 2017


Israeli Economic Minister Eli Cohen on Sunday suggested that Israel had issued warnings about specific terror plots to some 30 countries in 2017.

“You all heard last week that Australia got a phone call from the state of Israel [warning that terrorists] intend to blow up a plane,” Cohen said, referencing recent news that Israel prevented an Islamic State terror attack in August in Australia.

“Actually, 30 countries got phone calls from Israel in 2017, in which Israel called them and said to them: You need to know this and that, in this and that place, pay attention, there’s going to be an attack.”

The statement by Cohen appears to indicate that a number of countries worldwide rely on Israeli intelligence to provide security to their citizens.
