The level of terrorist incidents fell significantly in April, according to a report by the Shin Bet, the Israel Security Agency.

According to the report, part of the reason for the decline was simply a result of comparatively high levels of terrorism in March due to the escalation with Gaza.

The number of attacks fell from 229 in March to 70 in April, reflecting a drop in Gaza attacks from 157 to nine.

Ten rockets were fired at Israel in April, two of which were from Sinai, the report said.
