(Worthy News) - The nuclear agreement signed between Iran and six world powers in July has 'significantly increased' the threat to Israel posed by the Islamic republic, Yossi Cohen warned Wednesday as he was sworn in as the new head of the Mossad intelligence agency. Still, he added, he was confident the spy agency would be able to formulate an 'appropriate response.'

“The key challenge is the Iranian threat,” Cohen said during the swearing-in ceremony at Mossad’s headquarters in Tel Aviv. “Despite the nuclear deal — I think because of it — the threat has significantly increased.”

Cohen, who previously served as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s national security adviser, also pointed to internecine conflict in the Muslim world and the strengthening of regional terror organizations as a threat to the entire world, and to Israel in particular. [ Source ]
