Exposing Iran's Nuclear Archive: A Fantastic Intelligence Feat
- Maj.-Gen. (ret.) Yaakov Amidror
The Israeli intelligence community has once again proved it has extraordinary capabilities.
Reaching the secret Iranian nuclear archives, stored in an ordinary building so as not to attract attention, entering the facility and transferring the contents to Israel are all abilities that will remain important in future efforts to identify any Iranian attempt to deviate from the framework of the nuclear accord.
The Iranians should internalize that they have been penetrated, that Israel has the ability to reach the most sensitive places in Tehran and that they should think twice before they act.

Iranian Regime "Humiliated" by Daring Mossad Operation

Dr. Harold Rhode, who served for 28 years as an advisor on the Islamic world in the Office of the U.S. Secretary of Defense, said Israel "humiliated the Iranian government by capturing all of this material," and many Iranians were laughing at the Islamic regime on social media.
Mossad Snuck Nuclear Files Out of Iran with Authorities "on Their Tails"
Agents of Israel's spy agency Mossad smuggled hundreds of kilograms of files on Iran's clandestine nuclear weapons program out of Iran with Iranian agents "on their tails," Israel's Hadashot TV reported Tuesday.
The operation required an expansive operational infrastructure within Iranian territory.
The secret archives had been moved by Iranian authorities several times in a bid to keep them secret.
In January, Mossad agents received information pointing them to certain safes in a specific container inside a warehouse maintained by the Revolutionary Guard's Intelligence Organization in an industrial area of southern Tehran.
The team then broke in, removed the files and transferred them to a secondary location.
Iranian officials realized that information had been taken before the files were out of the country.
