Israel could easily assassinate Hezbollah Leader Hassan Nasrallah, and target Iran’s senior commander of foreign operations, Mossad Director Yossi Cohen has said.

In an interview with Israel’s Mishpacha magazine on Thursday, Cohen said that the Quds force commander “knows that his elimination is not impossible,” and that Soleimani “has not yet made a mistake putting him in the list of Mossad’s liquidators.”
At the same time, the official admitted that Soleimani’s “actions are identified and felt everywhere,” and that “there’s no doubt that the infrastructure he built presents a serious challenge for Israel.”

The Mossad chief also said that his agency could also assassinate Hezbollah’s leader, but that this was “not the right question.” Nasrallah, Cohen said, “knows we have the option of eliminating him.”

The official revealed that there was “one target that we eliminate without hesitation,” and that was officials from Palestinian political and militant group Hamas operating abroad. “From local agents to those who manage acquisitions of weapons pointed toward Israel,” Cohen explained.

“There are more than a few assassinations,” he noted, but added that Israel’s enemy had “changed tactics” and was no longer “quick to attribute assassination to us, for its own reasons.”

Earlier this year, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he saw Cohen as one of the two people he thought would be “fit to lead the State of Israel.” In his Mishpacha interview, Cohen shied away from plans to enter politics for the moment, but said he definitely saw himself “in the leadership of Israel in the future.”

If it were easy, they would do it. Lying scum they are.

They already spared Soleimani, taking care of Mugniyeh alone (joint ops by CIA+Mossad) while they could have “done” both at once…

Funny fact :Soleimani ordered the murder of Badreddine in 2016. The 2 Hezb master-terrorists who did the mass murder of 301 US+French Blue Helmets in 1983 liquidated and Soleimani was “around”. Interesting

Some little “arrangements” with him as they had with Otto Skorzeny? Anything is possible with Mossad.

For Nazgullah, it’s more simple : they know where his bunker is for long. Rafael just created a new bunker-buster missile which can go much deeper than the GBU-28

This is the way of cocky Mossad distancing itself from their , failed, attempted design to assassinate Soleimani in his father’s Husseinyah. If they had been ”successful”, they would be primed to claim with pride , analogous to ”Gay Pride” , the ownership of the plot. With some years delay in between, in some retired Mossad agent’s ”revelations” account in book form.

Also, it’s not for a lack of trying either. The Israelis have made attempts on his life, just not succeeded yet. If I were the Iranians/Hezbollah all those American and Israeli weapons captured off jihadis in Syria could be passed to Hamas for use against the oppressive apartheid state, Israel. It would save Israel a lot of time tracing where those weapons and ammo targeting them originated from…
