Detailed discussion by former senior security officials over a strike on Iran harms state security, former Mossad chief Danny Yatom said Sunday morning in an interview with Army Radio.

Yatom expressed concern over many statements released by former security officials about a potential military strike on Iran, saying, "It is legitimate to discuss whether or not to attack Iran's nuclear facilities, but going into detail, harms state security."

His comments came a day after former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy told Channel 2 that Israel should not, and likely will not, act against Tehran's nuclear program without the consent of the United States.

“It would not be wise for Israel to operate on its own, and I believe it won’t,” Halevy told Channel 2. “I didn’t say [Israel] won’t act alone, but I think it won’t do something that is against American interests.”
