Southern police district head Yochanan Danino on Wednesday said that police had expected that the peace talks would lead to an increase in terror attacks.

"As soon as the diplomatic process began, we made preparations for the eventuality that extremist elements, especially Hamas, would attempt to heat up the situation and launch terrorist attacks," southern police district head Yochanan Danino said.

"Unfortunately, our preparations were founded on a correct assumption. But I would also like to stress that we have a very strong home front, made up of resilient residents and local leaders. They are showing leadership and responsibility, and they are cooperating with us fully," Danino added.
