The head of the Israel Security Agency, commonly referred to as “Shin Bet,” said in a recording that was leaked to Israeli media that the agency is going to hunt down and kill all Hamas officials, including top officials hiding on foreign soil.

In a recording obtained by Israel’s public broadcaster Kan, Shin Bet Head Ronen Bar calls this “our Munich” — a reference to when Palestinian terrorists murdered 11 members of Israel’s Olympic team in the 1972 Summer Games in Munich. Israel responded to the murders by hunting down and killing every person that was involved, either directly or indirectly, with the attacks.

Bar’s comments come after Palestinian terrorists with Hamas murdered 1,200 Israelis, wounded 5,300+, and kidnapped more than 240 in an unprecedented terrorist attack on October 7.

“The cabinet set a goal for us, to take out Hamas. And we are determined to do it, this is our Munich,” he said. “In every location, in Gaza, in the West Bank, in Lebanon, in Turkey, in Qatar, everyone. It will take a few years, but we will be there in order to do it.”

He said that his agency is responsible for security and that they failed to do their jobs on October 7 but are now “on an upward trajectory.”

Bar said that Shin Bet was “not waiting” to take every action that it can at the current moment to execute its goals as it operates with a new sense of urgency.

“We are already learning our lessons from the events, already transferring them to other sectors, not just to the Gaza Strip, of course,” he said.

He added that much of what Israel has faced over the last year from a threat perspective is not known to the public.

“The scope of threats facing the State of Israel has been unprecedented in the past year, even before these events,” he said. “Even in this case, the main issues are hidden from view. Many things are happening beneath the surface.”
