Israel’s Shin Bet vows to hunt down Hamas in Lebanon, Qatar, Turkey: audio leak

The head of Israel’s domestic security agency Shin Bet has vowed to hunt down members Hamas in Lebanon, Turkey, and Qatar, according to a leaked recording.

Israel’s public broadcaster Kan aired the audio on Sunday, where Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar can be heard saying: “The cabinet has set us a goal, in street talk, to eliminate Hamas.

“We will do this everywhere, in Gaza, in the West Bank, in Lebanon, in Turkey, in Qatar. It will take a few years but we will be there to do it.”

It was unclear when Bar made the remarks, or to whom, while then agency itself declined to comment on the report.
