Defense Minister Ehud Barak criticized former Mossad chief Meir Dagan saying his recommendation against attacking Iran was a serious offense, and could likely jeopardize Israel's deterrence capabilities, Army Radio reported Monday.

According to Barak, several options for action against Iran remain open, and Israel's discretion on the matter is key in maintaining optimum deterrence.

The defense minister did tell Israel Radio, however, that Israel has made no decision to strike Iran or any of its nuclear reactors.
