Israeli Security Chief: Failed Peace Talks Won’t Bring More Terror– Lahav Harkov
(Daily Alert)

Failures in peace talks will not lead to an escalation in terrorism in the West Bank, Israel Security Agency chief Yoram Cohen told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Tuesday. He reported an uptick in attacks in the West Bank, coming mostly from individuals as opposed to terrorist organizations. There were 1,700 terrorist attacks in 2013, including shootings, firebombs, stabbings and rock-throwing, as well as several attempts to kidnap civilians and soldiers.

    Cohen listed economic problems and lack of trust in PA President Mahmoud Abbas by Palestinians as reasons for the attacks. (Jerusalem Post)
