Minister: Netanyahu didn’t hint at credit for Iran hit

Intelligence Minister Eli Cohen tells Army Radio that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was not hinting at Israeli involvement in the killing of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh when he released a statement in which he boasted about not being able to speak about all of his achievements.

“He was referring to his talks with countries Israel has no ties with,” he says, seemingly referring to the premier’s secret trip to Saudi Arabia.

But Cohen does say he is not shedding any tears over the death of Fakhrizadeh. “His removal from the world contributed to the Middle East and the whole world. Anyone who takes an active part in creating a nuclear weapon is a dead man walking,” he warns.
