Defense Minister Ehud Barak condemned the vandal attack on a monastery in Latrun on Tuesday, and issued a call "to the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), the police and state prosecution to tackle Jewish terrorism."
"This must be fought with an iron fist, and we must put an end to these severe phenomenon that stain the name of the state of Israel. We are obligated to uproot this phenomenon," Barak added.
