This article says that the IDF now foils about 15 suicide bombings for each one that succeeds (whereas last March there were 8 foiled attacks and 17 successful ones), and that attacks will be foiled more easily once the northern segment of the security fence is completed in July. The PA is taking some action against the firing of Kassam rockets from Gaza into Israel because they fear reoccupation and anyway the rockets don't cause enough damage to boost Palestinian morale. There is now said to be both an operational plan and broad consensus in Israeli political echelons for expelling Arafat.
