“Foiling the attack is, first of all, most of the intelligence system, first of all, and prepared sharpest operational command”-so said today (Monday), Defense Minister Ehud Barak on the tour there with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Chief of staff Lieutenant General Benny Gantz in the thwarted bombing last night at the Kerem Shalom crossing.

“The soldiers, who responded quickly, preventing a very serious event. An event could be, with the explosive was a small truck exploded right in the beginning and explosive vests on six or eight terrorists who were in the shrionit, there is no doubt that their entry into the community or into a military camp by surprise, could cause serious damage, “added Minister Barak noted that” again proved how sharp intelligence, speed of response and operational ability to make all the difference. “

“I appreciate that this isn’t the last time we faced in attempts to attack us,” said the Minister, noting that “hope it’s a wakeup call to Egypt about the need to be efficient and on their side. The struggle here is all along the border, the border
, And around the Gaza Strip border, against the intentions of terrorists to hurt us last and I hope to meet a lot of successes, should also be careful.
