IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi vows military operations to counter Iran’s capabilities — including nuclear — will continue.

“Operations to destroy Iranian capabilities will continue, in any arena and at any time, and the operational plans against Iran’s nuclear program will continue to be developed and improved,” Kohavi says during a ceremony for new Military Intelligence chief Aharon Haliva.

Maj. Gen. Tamir Hayman, the outgoing intelligence chief, says the Islamic Republic is currently stable but predicts it will eventually fall.

“Although it is an unjust totalitarian regime, which oppresses its citizens and will end up falling, it is stable for now,” he says.

“History has taught us what becomes of such dark regimes,” Hayman adds.
