Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered the IDF to raise its alert level ahead of a possible attack on Iranian nuclear facilities in 2010, a move which drew virulent objections from both the IDF and Mossad chiefs, according to a Channel 2 investigative report previewed on Sunday evening.

During a meeting of select senior ministers in 2010, Netanyahu allegedly ordered the IDF to raise its state of alert to "P-plus," which is reserved for an imminent state of war, according to the report.
