The government of Israel’s then-prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, reportedly notified the Biden administration less than two hours before it launched a sabotage operation at Iran’s Natanz uranium enrichment facility.

The remarkable lack of intelligence cooperation between the US and Israel was revealed by the New York Times on Thursday, indicating a rough patch in relations that the two nations need to overcome. The attack, which Israel has never claimed responsibility for, happened in April and caused damage to a power plant at the highly-protected Iranian nuclear facility.

The Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, “gave the United States less than two hours’ notice” before the operation, the newspaper said, citing anonymous Israeli and American officials.

This left Washington with virtually no time to assess the plan and potentially make objections. Israeli officials explained the decision, claiming the Americans had previously “leaked information about some Israeli operations,” the Times said. American officials denied the accusation. Other Israeli sources said Netanyahu was concerned that the Biden administration, which was seeking rapprochement with Iran, did not pay enough attention to Israel’s security concerns.
