IDF chief Kochavi also blames Iran for ship attack

The IDF chief Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi said on Sunday that the attack on the Israeli cargo ship in the Gulf of Oman was a reminder that Iran “spreads terrorism and is conducting terrorist activities against civilian targets and is not just a nuclear threat.” He added his voice on this to that of Defense Minister Benny Gantz. Speaking at the 8200 Intelligence Unit’s change-of-command ceremony, Gen. Kochavi stressed. “All our fronts are active and require updated and real-time intelligence.”

Israeli investigators left on Saturday for Dubai to join the probe into the explosions on Israeli-owned MV Helios Ray cargo ship on Thursday.
