The 14-member Security Cabinet, the body authorized to approve military attacks, met Tuesday to hear the annual intelligence assessments provided by the country's intelligence agencies.

The 10-hour meeting is believed to be the first time in months that this body conducted an in depth discussion on Iran that is believed to have included timelines, Iran's "zones of immunity," and what sanctions could still be adopted. In addition, the situation in Egypt and Syria was also discussed.

The forum is highly classified, and even advisors to the ministers were not allowed into the meeting that took place in the center of the country.

The ministers were briefed by the heads of the Mossad, Shin Bet (Israel's Security Agency) and military intelligence. No further details were made available.
