Cabinet Communique
(Communicated by the Cabinet Secretariat)

The Cabinet convened this evening (Thursday), September 19, 2002, following the series of severe terror attacks which have occurred over the last two days.

Article 35 of Basic Law: The Government applies to the matters discussed at the meeting.

The Cabinet made operational decisions vis-a-vis counter-terrorist activity.

Israel is in the midst of a difficult and continuing war against abominable and brutal terror, which is being led by the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority, who has established a coalition of terror. This is a war in which Israel will continue to show determination and stamina and in which Israel will be victorious.
