Ex-security chief: Kuntar was plotting attacks

Former Israeli national security adviser Yaakov Amidror says Samir Kuntar had been “very active in the north part of the Golan Heights in the Syrian side, responsible for preparing the area for attacks against Israel,” before he was killed in an alleged Israeli airstrike.

“And if he is neutralized by someone, it’s good news for the State of Israel,” said Amidror, but added that he did not know whether Israel was responsible for his death.

Asked why Israel does not claim credit for such incidents, he said it makes it less likely for the other side to retaliate.
