The ratio was 23/52. And the Palestinian terrorists didn't 'get lucky';
they planned their ambushes and planted their booby-traps well. That's
why there was so much damage to buildings in Jenin; after one
ambush, the Israeli infantry changed their tactics and proceeded to
advance through buildings, by knocking out walls between partitions,
rather than advance down the booby-trapped and amush-lain roads
between buildings. Also, the Palestinian terrorists have quite a few
guns to go along with their bombs, and the terrorist organizations train
their members intensely.
