Yossi Cohen led the Mossad for more than five years.

It was a “revealing” interview.

Yossi Cohen, the outgoing director of Israel’s intelligence services, called Mossad, offered details on some of the country’s most prominent operations against Iran.

Among other things, Cohen, who retired last week after more than five years as head of Israeli espionage, spoke of the theft of Iran’s nuclear archive in 2018, which allowed tens of thousands of documents to be taken out of the country bound for Israel.

Cohen talso hinted Israeli involvement in the destruction of the plant Natanz nuclear, in central Iran, and in the assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, the top scientist in the Iranian nuclear program, in November 2020.
