Last night, the Shin Bet held an awards ceremony in the presence of the Israeli Prime Minister for achievements by members of the intelligence community between 2015 and 2016. During the awards ceremony, the Shin Bet head revealed that the organization thwarted hundreds of terror attacks during this past year alone.

“Qualitative intelligence, advanced technology and excellent human capital are the cause that this year the Shin Bet thwarted over 400 significant terror attacks,” Shin Bet head Nadav Argaman noted. “You see what we see but you thought about what no one thought about before you.”

During the ceremony, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Shin Bet head Nadav Argaman gave out awards for six special operations that were considered the most creative and sophisticated that the Shin Bet performed over the last two years in the operational, technological, cyber and intelligence fields both nearby and far away.
