Israel Mossad chief talks about possible assassination of General Soleimani

The chief of Israel's Mossad spy agency has said the assassination of Major General Ghasem Soleimani, the head of the IRGC elite Quds Force, is "not impossible" for Israel.

Iran Press/Middle East: In his interview with Mishpacha newspaper, head of Israel's foreign intelligence, Yossi Cohen in a response to a question regarding the assassination of General Ghasem Soleimani claimed that the elimination of Iran's Quds Force Commander Soleimani 'not impossible'.

Yossi Cohen said that Soleimani is yet to make it to 'the prestigious list of Mossad assassination targets', adding that Soleimani knew his elimination was "not impossible".

According to the Mossad chief, Israel is also capable of assassinating the head of Lebanon's Hezbollah, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah but he did not explain why the Zionist regime has not carried out such a high-profile assassination as yet.

Commenting on the regional frictions, Cohen said Israel is not interested in a conflict with Tehran, but rather in preventing it from developing a nuclear strike capability.

Israeli top spy added that Iran's regional activities did not represent an existential threat to Israel, although they did constitute a security challenge for it. 101/211/219
