First report: Tomorrow, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be awarding citations to six Mossad teams for the first time for successfully carrying out the agency’s special operations over the past year.
The six teams will receive the citations for a series of covert operations carried out by the organization’s men and women around the world- enemy states included. Some of the operations apparently used unique technologies developed by and for the Mossad.
The ceremony will be attended by Netanyahu and Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen and is expected to become an annual tradition. During Netanyahu’s tenure, the Mossad’s budget grew significantly, as did the scope of its operational activity and its use of new technological advancements.
