Prime Minister Naftali Bennett told Mossad officials that “the big, monumental, task that lies on your shoulders is to prevent Iran from going nuclear. This is a task you have been dealing with for many years, but we seem to be approaching the moment of truth, we have reached money time”. He further maintained that “the [nuclear] agreement does not bind us, and the date – two and a half years from now — which allows Iran to assemble countless centrifuges, certainly does not bind us”. “This is the time to act so that the situation will be different”, Bennett asserted. “As far as I am concerned, you, together with the IDF, of course, are the address. The mission is on you”.
