GUESS WHETHER THERE ARE MORE LESS TERRORIST ATTACKS SINCE THE HAMAS ELECTION VICTORY

The General Security Service has released the details of security incidents in February compared to January

The GSS and the IDF have responded to media requests to combine all Palestinian terrorist attacks over the past two months in a single table.


-----> January ---------> February
2 Suicide bombings 5 Stabbing attempts
102 Qassam rockets 80 Qassam rockets
52 Shooting incidents 37 Shooting incidents
18 roadside mines 13 roadside mines

237 terrorist incidents 202 terrorist incidents

The findings are interesting: Since the Hamas Victory there has been a reduction in each one of the parameters observed. What’s more there have been no suicide bombing since then.

At this stage, it is unclear whether the results are accidental or whether the Hamas is preventing the other organisations from carrying out terrorist attacks.
