Meir Dagan, who was widely credited with setting back Iran’s nuclear program through covert and daring operations as the director of the Mossad intelligence agency from 2002 to 2011, died on Thursday. He was 71.

The Mossad announced his death, and a spokeswoman for the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center said that Mr. Dagan had died there of liver cancer. Mr. Dagan underwent a liver transplant in Belarus in 2012, but he faced complications after returning to Israel.
