Israel thwarted 560 significant terror attacks in 2019, including 10 suicide bombings, 4 kidnappings and more than 300 shooting attacks, the Shin Bet Director Nadav Argaman reported.
Speaking at the awards ceremony for outstanding service members in the country’s intelligence agencies, Argaman said that the outgoing year was packed with security challenges in all the areas of Shin Bet operations.
Argaman gave credit to the entire Shin Bet and other agencies for their efforts in nabbing Muslim terrorists before they could massacre Israeli civilians.
“Thwarting these attacks was only possible through the efforts of our entire agency – thanks to your investment, determination, constant commitment, professionalism and creativity,” the Shin Bet chief said.
“The ability to create something from nothing, to think out of the box in order to combat certain new terror challenges proved that the sky is the limit for what intelligence agents can accomplish to defend the country”, Argaman added.
