Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Tuesday stressed that there is a link between politics and defense, a day after him and four Labor MKs left the party and formed a new faction, called Independence.

"We came here to make sure that everything related to security will be handled properly, and of course our responsibility in the political echelon is to ensure that the political process continues to support this, because there is a link between this and the security situation in the region," he said during a tour of a military base in Nablus.

Barak praised the security forces saying, " I am grateful to impose the extraordinary achievements of security all over Judea and Samaria Division Central Command, also here in Nablus. It's the fruit of exceptional labor and professionalism of the IDF, the Shin Bet and the coordination of common interests and understandings with the Palestinian security forces."
