Foreign Report: Spy Ring Working for «Israel» Exposed in Algeria
An international spy network, comprised of at least 10 agents, operating for the “Israeli” entity was exposed and subsequently arrested in Algeria, according to Channel 2 citing Arab media networks Friday.
Reports indicated that the spies were operating in southern Algeria and held citizenship in a variety of African countries including Libya, Mali, Ethiopia, Liberia, Nigeria and Kenya.
The suspects were arrested on charges of espionage, attempt to create anarchy and damaging national security.
Communications equipment used by the suspects was also seized by authorities.
Arab media reported that the “Israeli” entity’s foreign intelligence agency, Mossad, assassinated in December a Hamas member operating out of Tunisia.
The target, Mohhamed Zawari, known to the “Israeli” entity’s security echelon as “The Engineer,” was found shot to death inside his vehicle in the city of Sfax, local media reported.
Five suspects were later detained by Tunisian authorities, along with multiple vehicles, weapons and mobile devices.
One Tunisian journalist said the killing was carried out by the Mossad, who had been following Zawari for some time, Channel 10 added.
Zawari, an aviation engineer and scientist, was shot three to seven times by unknown assailants in his car near his home.
Though, the motive behind his shooting remains unclear.
According to Channel 10, the nationalities of the detainees included one suspect from the Netherlands, one from Morocco and the rest from varying European countries.
