Mossad director warns Iran: 'Harm to Israelis will lead to strike in heart of Tehran'

"They intend to sell additional arms, which will be shut down as well. Our fear is that in return, the Russians will transfer advanced weaponry to the Iranians that would certainly threaten our wellbeing and even our existence here," he stated.
