After the killing of Hamas deputy chief Saleh al-Arouri in Beirut yesterday, allegedly by Israel, Mossad chief David Barnea says today: “Let every Arab mother know that if her son took part in the [October 7] massacre — he signed his own death warrant.”

Barnea makes the comment at the funeral of former Mossad head Zvi Zamir, who died yesterday.

The quote is a paraphrase of a famous one by Israel’s first prime minister David Ben Gurion, who said in a 1963 speech: “Let every Hebrew mother know she has entrusted the fate of her [soldier] sons to commanders worthy of it.”
