Israeli media sources have revealed that CIA Director, John Brennan, secretly visited Tel Aviv and that the discussions between the two parties focused on the upcoming nuclear deal between Iran and the global superpowers, as well as “Iran’s involvement in terrorism and its plots in the Middle East”.

Haaretz newspaper reported today that it was informed by two senior Israeli officials that Brenan was a guest of Mossad chief Tamir Pardo a few days ago. During his visit, he had a series of meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, National Security Advisor Yossi Cohen, and a number of Israeli intelligence officials, including chief of Military Intelligence, Major General Herzl “Hertzi” Halevi.

According to the newspaper, the visit that took place on Thursday had been scheduled a long time ago, but was conducted during a “critical political moment”, nearly a month before the deadline set for signing the Iranian nuclear agreement. The newspaper also noted that it is unclear whether Brenan delivered any messages from US President Barack Obama to Netanyahu regarding the agreement, given the opposing views and deep disputes between the two countries with regards to this settlement.
