Ex-Israeli spymaster opposes Iran attack: Report
Jerusalem: Israeli media are quoting the country`s recently retired spy chief as saying a military strike against Iran`s nuclear program would be "stupid”.
This conclusion challenges Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu`s position that Iran won`t curb its nuclear ambitions unless it thinks it is threatened with military action.
Iran says it is not developing nuclear weapons, but Israel and the West do not believe that.
Media on Sunday reported that former spymaster Meir Dagan told a weekend conference that an effective attack on Iran would be difficult because Iranian nuclear facilities are scattered and mobile.
Dagan also cautioned that a strike would be liable to trigger war with Iran and possibly Syria.
He spoke days before Netanyahu is due to meet with US officials in Washington.
