Barak says replacement for Ofer Dekel to be announced soon

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Monday that in a matter of days, a replacement will be announced for Ofer Dekel, former chief negotiator in the case of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit. Barak added that "the probability of securing the quick release of Gilad Schalit is linked, amongst other things, to our ability not to discuss the issue in the news every morning."
