Tami Arad, the wife of missing Israeli airman Ron Arad, denies that any Mossad operatives were physically harmed while seeking information on the pilot during a recent operation.

“No soldiers lives’ were risked in the last operation in question,” Arad writes on Facebook. “I checked with the most senior officials in the Mossad before and after the mission and I was convinced they are telling they truth.”

“During the years in which they searched for Ron… no soldiers or Mossad agents were killed,” she adds.

Arad also says that her family has regularly asked that no soldiers’ lives be risked on missions to find out information about the fate of her husband.

“We also asked that if it is discovered that Ron is not alive that they don’t pay a price to bring it back,” Arad writes.
