Former Mossad chief Yossi Cohen claims that the “Iranian regime is lying to the whole world, and we proved it”.
According to former Mossad head Yossi Cohen’s speech held at the World Zionist Organization event in Basel, Switzerland, on Monday, the Mossad carried out a significant number of operations against Iran’s nuclear program, including some deep inside Iranian territory, reports The Jerusalem Post.
“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,” Cohen said, referring to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
Cohen guaranteed that Israel would do everything in its power “to delay and prevent the Iranians from building atomic bombs that would threaten the State of Israel.”
Cohen also addressed the issue of Iran’s support of terrorism, which also threatens Israel, besides the country’s nuclear aspirations. “This [Iranian] administration calls for the destruction of the State of Israel and wiping it off the map,” he said.
“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.”
Cohen also talked about the Abraham Accords, which he referred to as a peace trend. “The work of the Mossad is not only intelligence gathering but also the promotion of peace. We saw these results in the signing of the Abraham Accords.”
