Mossad chief Yossi Cohen said the Iranian nuclear deal gave Tehran "legitimacy and good economic conditions" while Netanyahu said Israel was in a solution to any international agreement signed by Iran.
The Mossad official confirmed that Iran and the organizations that support it are accelerating to control the lands that the organization of "Dahesh" is retreating.
Cohen said during a security session for the government that "the areas where there is a low spread, Iran is filling the vacuum," adding that Iran "controls the land for its interests and the interests of the organizations it supports in Lebanon and Yemen."
The Israeli site pointed out that "the organization" Dahesh "was dominated in late 2014 about 100 thousand square kilometers of land in western Iraq and eastern Syria, and that he controlled about 10 thousand additional square kilometers in Nigeria, Libya, Afghanistan and Egypt, and that the organization is losing control On land in 2015, and currently lost more than half of that land, and now only controls about 36 thousand square kilometers.
The source quoted Israeli officials as warning that "Tehran may use areas in western Iraq and eastern Syria as a bridge to connect them to Lebanon, where it can transport fighters and weapons."
On the other hand, Mossad chief accused Iran of not abandoning its desire to develop nuclear weapons, "in the two years since the signing of the Iranian nuclear agreement, known as the comprehensive joint action plan," describing the nuclear agreement between Iran and the Sixth Internationalism that only reinforced " Iranian hostility in the region. "
"Iran now enjoys economic growth and international contracts following the agreement," Cohen told Israeli ministers in this context.
The Israeli news website quoted the Israeli Prime Minister's office as saying that Netanyahu had responded to the Mossad chief's warnings by saying that "Israel is never committed to the international agreements signed by Iran."
The Israeli Prime Minister's Office stressed that "Israel will continue to work with determination and in multiple ways to protect itself from these threats."
