Substantial Decrease in Terror Attacks in March
JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli security forces' heightened alert and quick responses to terror attacks brought a substantial decrease in overall attacks last month.
Stabbings, drive-by shootings and vehicular attacks were down to six in March, compared with 56 in February, 45 in January and 40 in December. Rock throwing and firebomb attacks stayed about the same.
On Monday morning, police arrested 11 Palestinian Arabs in two separate vehicles trying to enter Jerusalem illegally, several carrying false identity cards, and one 17-year-old youth carrying a concealed kitchen knife.
Meanwhile security forces demolished the home of the three terrorists who killed 19-year-old Border Policewoman Hadar Cohen and critically wounded a second female officer in February.
