Nobel Peace Prize winner dies, number of terror attacks goes down

The number of attempted terror attacks has dropped since Yasser Arafat died three weeks ago, with Palestinian terror organizations in a 'waiting mode' to see how things develop on the ground, Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz told the cabinet Sunday.

Mofaz said that despite the reduction in attempted attacks, the number of alerts remains high, as does the motivation to carry out attacks, including attacks inside the Green line.
