Israel’s Public Security Minister Leaks Censored Information On Fallen Soldier
Public Security Minister Omer Barlev (Labor) on Tuesday morning revealed on Kan Bet the name of the enemy country in which Staff Sergeant Barak Sharabi fell in 1984: Syria.
Military censors did not permit the name of the country to be revealed, and Barlev, who was Sharabi’s commander in Sayeret Matkal, did not receive permission to reveal it prior to his slip of the tongue.
According to Channel 12 News, preparation for the strategic mission involved the participation of then-Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Major-General Ehud Barak, commander Barlev, and field commander Avi Dichter.
