Security forces foiled seven suicide attacks in Israel over the past month and a half, Shin Bet head Yuval Diskin told the cabinet Sunday morning, adding that the apparent lull in terror was attributable to the vigilance of the IDF, Shin Bet and other security apparatuses. Diskin also noted a marked decline in the number of Kassam rockets fired at Israel, from 110 a month in August to 85 in September. According to Shin Bet assessments, the figures were the result of the Hamas making a strategic decision to cease rocket fire.
