Israeli channel: Netanyahu urged Trump to support operation for restoring "Mossad" elements in Iran
[16/يناير/2019] SANAA, Jan. 16 (Saba) - Arab media reported that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked US President Donald Trump to help restore elements of the Mossad in the event of a special operation in Iran.
The Hadashot TV channel on Tuesday said that the talk about the alleged operation announced by Tel Aviv that it ended with the "Mossad" on a large package of secret documents revealed by Netanyahu last April, accusing Tehran of lying about its nuclear program.
The television report said that Netanyahu discussed the operation with Trump before starting, on the sidelines of the Davos World Economic Forum in January last year, in search of US assistance in the event of failure of the operation and called for the need to save the Israelis.
The report did not reveal how Trump reacted to the request and whether it was the first time the US president heard of Mossad's plans.
The New York Times reported earlier that Mossad chief Yossi Cohen told Trump about the operation, which was being prepared during his visit to Washington in January.
