Israel has agents spying on the ground in Iran, Mossad chief Yossi Cohen said during a closed session at the Finance Ministry, Israel National News reported on January 9.
“We have eyes and ears, even in Iran,” the media outlet quoted Cohen. He also warned that Iran is expanding further in the region.
“The Iranians are spreading across the Middle East with a vast array of forces, and there is little holding them back.”
The Mossad chief added that Teheran is en route “to realize its dream of creating what almost amounts to a land and air bridge allowing them to dump troops across the Middle East.”
Cohen’s comment came just hours after reports that the Syrian Air Defense had thwarted an Israeli missile attack on military targets in the Damascus countryside and days after Iranian public prosecutor, Mohammad Jafar Montazeri, accused CIA, Israel and Saudi Arabia of fomenting the unrest which has swept across Iran.
