Outgoing Mossad Chief Meir Dagan addressed the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee for the last time on Monday, and retracted his previous statement that Iran will not have nuclear weapons before 2015.

"The Iranian nuclear challenge will stay significant," Dagan said. He explained that the timing "will not change the fact that Iran is working towards nuclear military capabilities and in certain scenarios can shorten the time" it takes to have nuclear weapons.
