Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan on Wednesday dismissed the scandal surrounding the Ofer brothers' dealings with Iran for the second time in three days.

Speaking at a conference in Tel Aviv, Dagan asserted that the Ofer family is in the transportation business, saying, "there's no law saying you can't dock in Iran."

The former Mossad chief told conference participants that he was speaking out not because he's the "Ofer family defender - I'm not their representative." Dagan explained, "I am just worried about the State of Israel."
