The Islamic Republic has accumulated more enriched uranium since Israel pushed for the annulment of the Iran nuclear deal, and is spreading its influence and power throughout the Middle East, outgoing deputy head of Mossad said in an interview with Israeli media in which he criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “Our situation today is worse than it was at the time of the [2015] nuclear deal,” the official – who can only be identified by the first initial of his name, “A” – told Yediot Aharonot. “They didn’t stop their spread in the region for a moment. They are developing missiles… the deal we made wasn’t good; we are back to the same place.”

“A” retired last month after narrowly losing out on becoming the next Mossad chief to replace current director Yossi Cohen, who leaves his post in June. Both “A” and “D,” who was Cohen’s deputy prior to “A” and who won the appointment, are highly respected and considered talented and apolitical candidates within the spy agency. “A” said that one of the goals of the January 2018 Mossad raid on the Iranian nuclear archive was to help convince former US president Donald Trump to withdraw from the nuclear deal.
