"Netanyahu Cancels Security Meeting After Leaks On Iran’s Nuke Program"

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cancelled a meeting with his security cabinet today complaining that a member of the forum had leaked sensitive information on Iran. Yesterday, Ynet reported that a senior official who participated in the security cabinet’s first session on Tuesday said that the information Israeli intelligence officials provided them on Iran was “disturbing” but “not daunting.” “They are holding their own vis-à-vis the international pressure, but on the other hand, they’re not running wild,” the official said. After the report, Netanyahu scolded his team and cancelled today’s meeting. “A short while after the meeting yesterday something serious happened,” Netanyahu said. “A leak from the cabinet discussions… someone severely damaged the trust that Israel’s citizens have in this forum.”
