Ex-Mossad Head: We Operated Against Nuclear Program in 'Heart of Iran'
The Mossad carried out a significant number of operations against Iran’s nuclear program, including some deep inside Iranian territory, former Mossad head Yossi Cohen said at a World Zionist Organization event in Basel, Switzerland, on Monday, August 29.
"The Iranian regime is lying to the whole world and we proved it when we brought thousands of documents from the Iranian archives, documents that proved that the Iranians lied to the IAEA,” he said, using the acronym for International Atomic Energy Agency.
“I can guarantee that Israel will do everything necessary to delay and prevent the Iranians from building atomic bombs that would threaten the State of Israel,” Cohen continued.
Cohen also addressed Iran’s state support of terrorism, which he described as another threat facing Israel besides Iran’s nuclear aspirations. “The regime in Iran is the global financier of terrorism in the world,” said Cohen.
“This [Iranian] administration calls for the destruction of the State of Israel and wiping it off of the map. Iran is trying to besiege Israel from the south in Gaza and from the North in Syria and Lebanon,” he said. “[Iran] trains and finances terrorist organizations. The administration allows terrorist organizations to send thousands of missiles towards Israel.” (JPost / VFI News)
