    Israel's strategy in dealing withterror has all but eliminated successful terrorist attacks coming from Judea and Samaria- andit happened BEFORE the security fence was even up. "Gen. Amidror: Targeted Killings Work" (Nov. 2, 2005 / 30 Tishrei 5766) (Former IDF Intelligence Deputy Chief Gen. Yaakov ) Amidror, speaking on Army Radio, quoted the "precise statistics" of a study by Prof. Ben-Yisrael of Tel Aviv University, showing that "we used to have a full 140 deaths a month, and we were able to bring it down to 50 a year - without even a kilometer of fence." Amidror explained that this achievement was enabled in two stages: "First by re-conquering Judea and Samaria [in 2002], and then, three months later, by arresting or killing terror leaders... It causes them to spend their time finding hiding places, instead of planning terror attacks." http://www.israelnationalnews.com/news.php3?id=92236
