Mossad Director Yossi Cohen and IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot took different takes on Tuesday in defining Israel’s number one threat, with Cohen focusing on Iran and Eisenkot opting for Hezbollah.
Cohen told a conference at Netanya University in honor of former Mossad chief Meir Dagan that, “as long as the current regime is in control, whether with a nuclear deal or without one, Iran will continue to be the central threat to Israel.”
