Former Military Intelligence chief Tamir Hayman says a”framework of agreements” between Iran and world powers is the “least bad” option for Israel right now.

Hayman does not elaborate what that would entail.

Iran has capabilities it didn’t previously have in the nuclear field, but is still some distance away from obtaining a bomb, Hayman — who is now the managing director of the Institute for National Security Studies — tells Channel 12 news.

According to Hayman, there’s an “ongoing confrontation” between Israel and Iran in the nuclear field, and with regards to Tehran’s efforts to establish itself in the region.

Hayman warns that Iran’s leadership needs to understand the danger that Unit 840, a shadowy division within the IRGC’s expeditionary Quds Force accused of carrying out kidnappings and assassinations of figures outside of Iran, poses for the country.

“Iran’s leader needs to understand that the [terror forces] he oversees, that endanger the security of Israelis and others all over the world, are likely to bring the conflict back home to him,” he says.
