‘Battling Iran is a colossal mission,’ Netanyahu says following blackout at Iranian nuclear plant


The shadow war against Iran has seen Israel become a global power, Netanyahu says

Battling Iran is a colossal mission, yet one that saw Israel grow in stature into a global power, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday amid reports that the Mossad intelligence agency was behind the blackout at an Iranian nuclear plant.

Speaking at an event with the Israeli military’s top brass also on Sunday, said “The battle against Iran and its proxies represents a colossal mission. That things are one way now doesn’t mean they will stay that way later on.”

“It’s very hard to explain what we have achieved here in Israel, going from total helplessness to being a global power,” Netanyahu added.

Iran’s atomic energy organization said that the Natanz nuclear facility was hit by a terrorist act, hours after it said an “accident” had caused a power failure there.

Hebrew-language public broadcaster Kan was among the local outlets that reported that Israel was likely behind the incident, while Channel 13 cited“Western intelligence sources” as saying that a cyberattack by the Mossad security agency was behind the outage.
