Israel: Counter-Terrorism Operations Intensify


November 14, 2005: An Israeli raid into the West Bank, killed a senior Hamas leader. There have been raids every night since the November 7 terrorist attack, but most of these raids result in arrests, not gunfire. The Israelis are trying to break up terror cells before they can plan and carry out more terrorist attacks inside Israel. The raids also seek to weaken Palestinian terrorist groups that provide infrastructure for terrorist attacks (and threaten the Israeli informer network in the area.) Israel and the Palestinian authority continue to argue over giving Palestinians access to Israel for jobs, and Palestinian inability to crack down on Palestinian terrorists.
