Israel will thoroughly investigate the incident and learn from it. When asked whether Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was aware of the attack scenario or had read the documents, Heinrich said, “We will conduct investigations. The Prime Minister has also spoken about this. When the time is right, he will say more.”
