The former head of Israel’s Shin Bet domestic security service asked to resign as the prime minister’s adviser on missing and captured Israeli soldiers in reaction to an Israeli Supreme Court order to release 13 of 15 Lebanese detainees held as bargaining chips. Ya’acov Perry said he respects the court ruling, but believes it removes one of Israel’s main tools in its attempt to find and free missing soldiers.
