SHAFAQNA (Shia News Association) — The former agent, Giora Tzahor, has a loaded history of military work starting with being head of the military unity that occupied the city of Nablus in 1967, right until he became head of the "special operations unit- Kidon" of the "Israeli" Mossad.
After the 1967 war, Tzahor joined the "Israeli" intelligence apparatus, and filled many positions until he joined Kidon, of which he was later appointed chief.
Among the operations conducted by the Kidon unit, at the time when Tzahor was chief, was assassinating the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) representative in Brussels, Naeem Khodor in 1981, in addition to other PLO officials in many European countries.
Moreover, he was also on top of assassinating the planner of the 1972 Munich operation, Abou Daoud, in Poland 1981. Also, one of Tzahor's alleged achievements was capturing the "Israeli" nuclear expert Mordechai Vanunu in 1986, and returning him to Tel Aviv.
In a statement, the Mossad claimed that Tzahor's death was a result of a car accident caused by an irresponsible deriver who hit Tzahor while he was riding his mountain bike.
It's worth mentioning that the "Israeli" army, especially the security branches, usually seeks to mislead when announcing the death of its agents and commanders, in order to escape the fact that they are dying in security accidents or operations.
Tzahor died at the age of 70.—www.shafaqna.com/english
