Netanyahu ordered attack on Iran in 2011, asked military to be prepared within 15 days: Ex-Mossad Chief

Former Mossad chief Tamir Pardo, in a television interview has revealed that Israeli Prime Minister Bejamin Netanyahu in 2011 had ordered to attack Iran. He had asked the Military to be prepared within 15 days.

Tamir Pardo told Keshet TV’s show Uvda in an interview that that the order was not given “for the sake of a drill.” There was no immediate comment from Netanyahu’s office.

“It’s not the sort of thing that you do just for practice,” the former Mossad chief said adding that there could be two reasons to order preparation for an attack — either to actually attack, or to send a signal to someone. “It’s possible the United States would find out about the order one way or another and would be impelled to take action.”
