Israeli security sources yesterday claimed that the Palestinian Authority (PA) helped occupation forces undermine 3,000 “lone wolf” attacks planned against Israel this year, Quds Press reported.

An Israeli television channel reported that the “terror attacks were undermined thanks to technology, intelligence services Shabak, Israeli army and Israeli police.”

Security sources said that the PA helped arrest Palestinians prior to attacks against Israeli targets taking place.

Shabak this year stopped 200 “dangerous” attacks which were being planned, including a suicide attack which included planting bombs, kidnapping and shooting live fire.
