Iranian Security Officials Admit Intelligence Failures and Call for Cleaning House

(Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs) Iran Desk and Lt.-Col. (ret.)

Iranian security officials fear that the normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, as well as the rapprochement with Saudi Arabia, will allow Israel a more convenient springboard for operational activity inside Iran. As in the past, in the next few weeks the regime will publicize information that it arrested people involved in the attacks so that it can save a little of its honor.
