The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee has received a classified briefing by senior officials from the military, Shin Bet security agency and Mossad spy agency, a spokesman says.

A Knesset spokesman says the briefing to the members of the powerful committee, chaired by Likud MK Yuli Edelstein, focused on the Iranian and Palestinian arenas.

“The members of the committee heard the latest intelligence assessments regarding the various arenas, on the operational activity — offensive and defensive — in the various arenas, and the expected main trends in each arena in 2023,” the spokesman says.

Edelstein says the hours-long briefing is “an important foundation of knowledge ahead of putting together work plans for the continuation of the committee’s activities.”
