Former deputy Shabak (Israel Security Agency) chief Yitzhak Ilan on Monday spoke with 103 FM Radio about the spread of coronavirus in Israel.

In an interview, Ilan responded to News 12's Sunday night report on the disagreement between Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the current Shabak chief, regarding the use of Shabak to track coronavirus patients.

"The nation of Israel lost the war against coronavirus when the tracking was stopped," Ilan said.

"It's a very difficult decision, but there were instances like this in the past, when Shabak was asked by the Attorney General to investigate issues, which were not under its authority, in order to discover the truth."

Slamming the leaks from the cabinet meeting, Ilan said, "This is an extremely serious thing, and I very much hope that the Attorney General will recover himself and order an investigation into who leaked [the information]."
