Shin Bet Director Nadav Argaman told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Tuesday that his agency has thwarted 480 Palestinian terror attacks in the last year. The Shin Bet’s efforts, he said, were a major factor in the maintenance of a fragile calm between Israel and the Palestinians.
Argaman also referred to 590 potential lone wolf attacks that the security service had prevented. The organization also arrested 219 Hamas cells in the West Bank, he said, though it remains unclear how many Palestinians were in each cell and how senior the operatives were.
So the next time you watch the superb Netflix series Fauda, multiply the story hundreds of times and it’ll give you some idea of the incredible feats of the various special units involved in keeping Israelis safe. Sh’koach! (may they go from strength to strength).
