Former Mossad chief and Yesh Sikuy director Meir Dagan is said to be facing the threat of assassination by an Iranian hit squad as he recovers from a liver transplant in Belarus, The Sunday Times reported.

After Belarus President, Alexander Lukashenko revealed last week that Meir Dagan was recovering in a hospital in Minsk, Israeli officials immediately increased his protection, The Times reported. The report added that sources indicated Iran, or its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah, would try to kill him.

“We’re very worried. Both Iran and Hezbollah are well aware of Dagan’s location and we believe some of their operators might be on their way to Minsk.” The Times quoted an Israeli source as saying.

By Sunday, Israel had sent enough agents to Minsk “not only to defend the hospital but the entire city”, The Times quoted the source as saying. “We’ll bring him back home safely.”
