Israel registered two casualties, compared to nine in 2019 and 16 in 2018.

Rabbi Shai Ohayon, a father of four, was stabbed to death by a terrorist in August.

IDF soldier Amit Ben Yigal was killed in action in May.

Rocket fire from the Gaza Strip also dropped dramatically in 2020. Some 175 rockets were fired at Israel in 2020, compared to 1,296 launches in 2019 and 1,164 in 2018.

Similarly, Israel registered progress in its war on Iran’s military entrenchment in Syria.

In his summary of 2020, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi noted Friday that “the Iranian establishment in Syria is in a clear slowdown, but we still have a long way to go to complete the goals in the arena.”

“We have struck over 500 targets this year, on all fronts, in addition to multiple clandestine missions,” he said.

Kochavi also revealed that the IDF “carried out many offensive” cyberattacks, which he said is “the most significant combat arena that has changed this year.”
