March 10, 2008 § Leave a comment
An Israeli intelligence report, which was presented to the Israeli parliament this week, brought forth the following regional security assessments, according to al-Hayat:
- Iran continues to represent the greatest threat to Israel.
- There is a greater chance of conflict breaking out with Hezbullah along the northern Lebanese-Israeli border than any other front.
- Israel faces five areas of security threats including Syria, but Iran and Hezbullah are the most prominent.
The Israeli intelligence apparatus consists of two main branches — Shabak (or Shin Bet), which is for domestic security and Mossad, which is handles external matters.
