The Jerusalem Post reports: In an interview on Sunday on 103 FM Radio – one day after the US-led attack in Syria and hours after mystery explosions rocked Iranian bases there – former Mossad head Danny Yatom urged that preparations be made for a possible threat from Iran.

Yatom called the American-British-French attack on Syria “a symbolic move, without any strategic significance.” “We are on a collision course with the Iranians and I hope that this won’t escalate into a direct confrontation. They have accused us of attacking Iranian targets and killing their people,” he said.

“We must take the Iranian threats on Israel very seriously,” Yatom added. “My acquaintance with the Iranians and past cases tell me that when they issue threats, they follow up on them. Looking at Iran’s violent history, you will find that they were behind attacks on many Jewish and Israeli facilities. They could also instigate a local incident on the Golan Heights. We have no doubt that Hezbollah acts as an extension of Iran’s will.”
