Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called the Mossad intelligence agency "the spearhead of Israel", Sunday evening. Appearing at an event to mark the 50th anniversary of the Mossad's operational wing, he said, "Your abilities are big and changing, developing and seemingly unachievable."
Netanyahu continued, "Reality is changing in a dizzying manner, and the tasks we impose upon you will increase accordingly. The role of the Mossad continues to grow in importance and I shall put all the necessary measures [at your disposal] in order that you will fulfill your missions. We honor your hard work and the size of the contribution and what you do for the security of Israel and there's more to come."
