Reports from Israeli military sources say that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered Mossad and Israeli Military Intelligence to find evidence of “violations” of the Geneva deal between the P5+1 and Iran.
Netanyahu’s goal is to discredit the deal by proving that Iran isn’t taking the terms seriously, and his orders seem to assume that such violations must exist.
Retired long-time Israeli military intelligence commander Amos Yadlin isn’t so sure of that at all, saying that he believes Iran “didn’t sign onto this in order to breach it,” and believes Iran likely will abide by the terms of the six month interim pact.
Netanyahu’s opposition to the P5+1 pact is driving Israeli intelligence operations at this point, but hoping to discredit the deal by finding evidence that may not exist of something that likely isn’t happening is a tall order.
