( A recent statement by U.S. Secretary of John Kerry concerning Israeli deaths from terrorism contradicts a report on terrorism issued by the Israeli Security Agency (Shin Bet).

Speaking at a security conference in Munich, Germany on Saturday about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations, Kerry said that “last year, not one Israeli was killed by a Palestinian from the West Bank,” according to a State Department transcript.

But according to a recent report on terrorism in 2013 released by the Shin Bet, six Israelis were killed terror attacks in 2013, including five in the West Bank. The Shin Bet report added that three of deaths were civilians, while the other three were members of the security forces.
