Dagan: Nobody Asked Five Minutes After the Attack on Iran

Former chairman of the Israeli Intelligence Service (Mossad), Meir Dagan, again warned that any form of attack on Iran's nuclear facilities would drag the Zionist regime into a regional battle that had destructive consequences for Tel Aviv.
"Attacks are confiscation and distortion. Nobody asks what will happen five minutes after the attack?" said Dagan (4/6).
"Five minutes after the attack, we will face a regional war," he added as reported by Ynet.

Dangan had repeatedly warned the Tel Aviv government of the destructive effects of an attack on Iran which, in 2011, the problem he called a "deaf idea."
Tel Aviv has also recently been subjected to criticism from military-intelligence officials regarding its policy towards Iran.

On the other hand, an Iranian and Middle Eastern analyst, Dr. Ismail Salami touched on a wave of criticism of the Tel Aviv regime and stated, "A major rift is taking place in Israel that threatens current authorities and their years of non-fundamental claims against Iran."
The former US ambassador to Tel Aviv, Thomas R. Pickering said on March 6, "The leaders of the three Israeli intelligence agencies do not seem to recommend any form of military attack on Iran."

The United States, Israel and their allies in the West accuse Iran of trying to produce nuclear weapons, but the Islamic Republic on various occasions dismissed the allegations. Tehran argues that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and also a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iran has the right to use nuclear technology for civilian purposes.

In addition, the IAEA also oversees all Iranian nuclear installations and in various reports on its inspections, saying there is no concrete evidence of irregularities in Tehran's nuclear program.
