Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu paid tribute to departing Military Intelligence Chief Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin at Sunday's cabinet meeting, saying: "We discussed the difficult problems and new challenges that face us, from the Iranian nuclear threat through the threat of missiles and rockets against the State of Israel, the development of Hezbollah and Hamas, as well as various developments in the countries of the region."

"I believe that Amos succeeded in giving us the tools with which to assess these dangers and to prepare to meet them," Netanyahu added.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that "under [Yadlin] military intelligence developed, in its ability to collect information and beyond what is imaginable."

"If we look at the results, I think that Amos, the man who stand at the head of this office, deserves the highest grade," Barak said.
