Jerusalem Post, Feb. 26, 2013: Unknown assailants burglarized the home of the head of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission [...] and made off with a briefcase full of documents, a wallet, and a mobile device, police reported on Tuesday. The house belongs to Brigadier General Dr. Shaul Horev, head of the IAEC and a senior official in the Prime Minister’s Office. Horev is in charge of Israel’s nuclear energy policy, one of the most sensitive jobs in the security establishment.

According to available information, the thieves absconded with a Horev’s briefcase, wallet, computer and a communication device. A statement by the Atomic Energy Commission said that no sensitive material was compromised. It denied a computer was among the items stolen. [...] Security sources said that on Tuesday, Horev’s wallet was found – with every one of his credentials inside – and that the communication device was recovered as well. It is believed that the break-in was a random criminal act.
