Jerusalem (Bridges for Peace) -- The Israeli Defense Minister disclosed that during the past week the security forces prevented 15 attacks that were intended against Israeli citizens and, in addition, arrested over 400 terrorist activists. "The IDF and security forces are making immense efforts to prevent terrorism. Over the past two weeks we are witnessing an increase in terrorist attempts against Israeli citizens. The assessment is that these increasing waves of terror are aimed at interfering with the democratic process in the State of Israel."

"Terrorism will not succeed in any way in defeating the citizens of Israel. Their strong stand over the past two years against murderous terrorism is witness to national vitality and powerful resistance so that if anybody doubted Israel's ability to face up to child murderers, that doubt has been removed."

Mofaz sent his condolences to the families whose loved ones had been murdered and wished swift recovery to the wounded. "We shall overcome these difficult times and we will prevail."

(IDF Spokesperson, November 29, 2002)
