Barak Slips Up, Reveals Site of Rocket Strike


Defense Minister Ehud Barak revealed the site of a rocket strike during a Wednesday morning radio interview. The precise site of rocket strikes is classified in order to prevent Gaza terrorists from getting information that would help them refine their aim.

During an interview with Razi Barkai of IDF Radio (Galei Tzahal), Barak let slip the name of the small community in southern Israel where a previous interviewee lives. Barkai was unable to cut him off in time, and the statement went out over live broadcast.
