    The image was accompanied by an ominous caption saying, "Dedi, are you ready for the next tip?", which may indicate that more files with connection to Barnea may be leaked soon.
    Barnea is scheduled to travel to the United States on Monday where he is scheduled to meet with senior White House officials, as well as with the CIA, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Pentagon, the State Department as well as other agencies.
    The Mossad head's trip to the United States will focus on tightening security and intelligence coordination with the Americans around the Iranian nuclear issue and amid reports that a potential return to the 2015 nuclear agreement is moving farther away.
    Later on Sunday, the group posted the results of a medical examination supposedly conducted for Barnea in 2018. The document included the results of a cardiac examination as well as hearing and eye tests.
