Two days after Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned that the IDF would take military action to prevent "leakage" of strategic weapons from Syria, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the cabinet on Sunday only that Israel was closely watching developments in Syria and was ready for anything. Regarding last week's attack in Bulgaria, Netanyahu said that the images from the funerals of the five Israelis killed in the attacks were "heartbreaking."
Netanyahu praised the way in which the country's various organizations –the IDF, the rescue and medical services, foreign ministry and interior ministry – stepped up in the time of crisis to go to Bulgaria and help those injured and traumatized by the blast, and bring home for burial those killed. "That really reflects the mutual responsibility for one another that is the foundation of our lives, and I want to say that the State of Israel is responsible for its citizens wherever they are, or wherever they may be," he said.
