Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Friday reiterated the Israeli assertion that Hezbollah with Iranian help was behind Wednesday's terror attack in Bulgaria which killed five Israelis, but said that the identity of the suicide bomber was still unknown.
Speaking in an interview with Channel 2, Barak rejected claims that the attack represented an intelligence failure for Israel. "There is no country whose intelligence gathering capabilities have a wider range than Israel's...I don't think we have anything to apologize for," the defense minister stated.
Barak stated that Israelis planning to go abroad on vacation should not be deterred from doing so by the attack in Burgas.
