Prime Minister Ariel Sharon convened his Security Cabinet this morning to discuss the progress and continuation of Operation Determined Stand. Since the operation began ten days ago, Israel has succeeded in thwarting numerous suicide bombings, arrested dozens of terrorists, and confiscated thousands of weapons. Last night was no exception, as troops arrested two terrorists about in the midst of preparations for suicide attacks against Israelis. Security forces made arrests in Kalkilye, in the Ramallah and Hevron districts, and in Shechem. Sharon has asked the army to prepare plans to ease the restrictions on the civil population in the areas now under IDF control.
