Case Study



Following three terrorist-related explosions on a main railway line within a three months period, Railways security has begun conducting daily early-morning patrols along the line, prior to opening the line for train transport. These daily patrols have succeeded in deterring any terrorist activity along this line.



Imposing regular security patrols, check-ups, as well as passenger and luggage screening at stations have created deterrence for terrorists which prevented attacks from taking place.
