PM Netanyahu: Israel stopped major terror attacks in Europe

On Tuesday afternoon Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended a lunch with NATO member state ambassadors to Israel and hinted that Israel has prevented hijacked airplanes from crashing into European cities.

“We have, through our intelligence services, provided information that has stopped several dozen major terrorist attacks, many of them in European countries,” he told foreign diplomats in Jerusalem.

“Some of these could have been mass attacks, of the worst kind that you have experienced on the soil of Europe and even worse, because they involve civil aviation. Israel has prevented that, and thereby helped save many European lives,” Netanyahu said, apparently referring to plane hijackings.

He did not provide specific details about the attacks Israel helped prevent.

Netanyahu said the world is under the threat of radical Sunni groups, initially led by al-Qaeda.

However, he added, ISIS terrorists and radical Shi’ites led by Iran are credited with most of the attacks.

  1. Of course, Israel has prevented terrorism for many decades & for many countries ; this is about recent events.
    Israel , in many ways operates like some European Countries and has healthy links with the USA. Intelligence is shared between such Nations for mutual gain ; Israel is well connected.
