How IDF Is Curbing Palestinian Terrorist Activity in West Bank

(JNS) Yaakov Lappin - The Palestinian terror wave that began this spring has not vanished, but it has receded after months of Israeli counter-terrorism operations and intelligence efforts. Launched by the IDF in March, "Operation Breakwater" has significantly dented the motivation and intent of terrorists in the West Bank to act.

A growing number of cells planning attacks on civilians were foiled at the planning stage, with Israeli security forces surprising them in their homes in the dead of night. In addition, large forces were deployed to gaps in the security fence and Israel fast-tracked a program to build a barrier in high-risk areas.
