Israeli, British and other international intelligence and security agencies are working ahead of the Olympics to minimize the chance that any attack takes place, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Sunday.

"This is something we work on anyway, whether there is a threat or not," Barak told Army Radio. "There is definitely intelligence and operational awareness" ahead of the games, he said, saying Israel will defend itself everywhere at all times.

Speaking of the terror attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria last week, the defense minister said there is nothing new to report about the investigation, but that Israel and its international partners are working with all their might to find those responsible.

"It is clear that this was a Hezbollah operation," he asserted.
