President Reuven Rivlin praises the political and defense officials responsible for the 2007 operation to destroy the Syrian nuclear reactor.
“Thank all of you who made the decision to strike down the nascent threat of a Syrian nuclear reactor, and those who carried out [the mission]. The people of Israel owe you a debt of honor, a debt of life,” Rivlin says, during a conference in memory of former Mossad chief Meir Dagan, who died in 2016.
Dagan was the head of the spy agency during the 2007 operation.
