Ya’alon: IDF, Israel Security Agency Have Thwarted Numerous Terrorist Plots


israel-defense-minister-moshe-yaalonIsraeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Tuesday praised the IDF’s Central Command and the Israel Security Agency for having foiled many terrorist plots. He said the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank did not have an interest in sparking a third intifada, but its incitement to hatred and violence was creating lone attackers, and Hamas and Islamic Jihad were seeking an upsurge in violence.

The Israel Police in cooperation with Border Police forces found a weapons cache in the Palestinian village of Abu Dis near Yerushalayim today. An armed explosive device and an 84mm rifle with 100 bullets were among the weapons found.
