Israeli cabinet meetings held in underground bunker
Tehran (KNA) - Senior Israel cabinet members have started convening their weekly meetings in a secure underground bunker located in Jerusalem al-Quds.
The forum, a round-table of senior ministers headed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has started to use the "National Management Center," Israeli media reported on Tuesday. The facility is located under the Tel Aviv regime's facilities in Jerusalem and includes living quarters and command facilities."
Cabinet ministers have told us that one of the main reasons for the move is Netanyahu's wish to try even harder to prevent leaks and because of fears of spying attempts by hostile foreign parties," said Israel's Channel 10.The meetings were formerly held in the prime minister's office in al-Quds.
The move comes at a time of increased tension with Iran.Last month, a senior Iranian official pledged that the Islamic Republic will punish Israel for the recent airstrikes on Syria that killed over a dozen people, including seven Iranian military advisors.
