Hagai Amir, the brother and co-conspirator of Yitzhak Rabin's assassin, Yigal Amir, told Channel 1 on Friday that he knew they would somehow succeed in killing the prime minister "after my brother told me that he was willing to die [in order to see the mission through]."

"Rabin was the target because we saw him as the one leading [the government's diplomatic policies]," said Amir, who described in detail how he and his brother planned to derail the Oslo Accords.

The film was broadcast just 24 hours before the keynote rally in memory of the slain premier at the Tel Aviv square that bears his name on Saturday.
