Barak Not Denying Israel Wanted to Kill Haniyeh
When asked by Voice of Israel Radio Yaron Dekel about the report, Barak said that "not everything that is written in the newspaper is true."
Dekel asked if this meant the report was false. "I would not say that," Barak replied.
"People eulogize Israel's security deterrent, I heard senior analysts saying that 'the key is in Hamas's hands.' But I want to remind everyone that the key to the next terror attack is always in the hands of the terrorist and not in our hands," he said. "We are defenders. We always act after the fact. There will always be someone to second guess us and say – if you had only done this and this, everything would have turned out differently," Barak added.
