Barak Slams Netanyahu For Breaking Israel Ambiguity On Syria


Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak is attacking the country’s current leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, for breaking with Israel’s ambiguity over its strikes against Iranian targets in Syria.

Barak’s comments on Monday came a day after Netanyahu’s abrupt confession that Israel had struck hundreds of Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria in recent years, including a weapons facility over the weekend.

Israel has generally refrained from commenting about its covert activities for fear of triggering a reaction and being drawn into the deadly fighting in neighboring Syria’s civil war.

Barak, a former military chief, told Israel’s Army Radio that “exposing it was completely unnecessary” and increased the chances of a deterioration.

He insinuated that Netanyahu’s considerations in doing so may have been political ahead of Israel’s upcoming April election.



  1. Ehud Barak was one of the worst prime ministers we have ever had! he wanted to give Arafat everything that he wanted for ‘peace’ only to have Arafat throw it back in his face and ask for more.

    Ehud Barak is a person who no one respects and a disgrace! If he had a brain he would get a brain transplant but he does not have a brain to think with!
