Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Yariv Levin (Likud) blasted former Mossad chief Meir Dagan for his statements criticizing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Levin noted that Dagan’s attacks on Netanyahu have been featured on state-run television in Iran.

"The irresponsible blabbing of Dagan caused great harm to the security of the state," Levin said. "Dagan is acting out of clear political motives. His hatred for the prime minister has blinded him long ago from seeing reality."

Levin said he hoped someone who once held a sensitive post would "restrain himself and not use his past to harm the future of all Israeli citizens."
