SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) Israeli regime’s spy agency, Mossad, has threatened to assassinate officials of the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas.
Israel Radio quoted a Hamas spokesman as saying that Israel’s spy agency, Mossad, has sent warning messages to Gaza officers and security forces, threatening to assassinate those fighting against the regime.
The threats came after Hamas said last week that its security forces arrested a number of people on suspicion of espionage for certain Western and Arab spy agencies in the Gaza Strip.
Mohammed Lafi, a Hamas security chief, said that half of those arrested “have confessed to being collaborators.”
“The Gaza Strip is swarming with Western intelligence agencies, such as the American, British, French and German services,” Lafi said, adding that certain Arab spy agencies were also operating in Gaza.
The official added that Hamas had a “list of collaborators who will be arrested once the time for them to repent has run out.”
In mid-March, Hamas Interior Ministry warned those spying for the Israeli regime that they would be pursued without mercy if they did not turn themselves in by April 11.
SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Nearly six weeks after the Israeli regime confirmed that an Australian-Israeli Mossad agent had committed suicide in one of its maximum security prisons, it is still unclear whether his death was murder or suicide.
According to press reports in Australia and Europe, the agent, Ben Zygier, also known as Prisoner X, was originally dispatched to Europe in 2005 by his Mossad handlers with a mission to infiltrate companies that did business with Iran in an effort to be assigned to the country under a commercial cover.
Although he succeeded in getting hired by a midsize European company, Zygier failed in his mission to penetrate Iran and was ordered to return to Israel.
Zygier, described as “an enthusiastic Zionist who grew up in a prominent Jewish family in Melbourne and immigrated to Israel as a young man,” then won Mossad’s approval to return to his native Australia under the alias Ben Alon to continue his college studies.
The reports further emphasize that following his February 2008 return to Australia, he attempted to approach members of Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement at University of Melbourne in an unauthorized, freelance effort to recruit them for Mossad.
In an apparent bid to gain the trust of a key Hezbollah agent in Eastern Europe, the reports say, Zygier “unintentionally” exposed two important Mossad elements in Lebanon, leading to their arrest and imprisonment.
These press reports have further revealed that Zygier believed that he had recruited the Hezbollah agent to work for Mossad, but it was indeed the Hezbollah man that played a double game with him, relaying all the information furnished by Zygier back to Hezbollah leadership in Lebanon.
As a result, the two Mossad elements, Ziad al-Homsi and Mustafa Ali Awadeh, were arrested in Lebanon in May 2009 and sentenced to long prison terms.
According to the British daily Independent, Zygier’s leaking of Mossad secrets was regarded as the biggest “treason” by the notorious spy agency, eventually leading to his recall to Israel in February 2010 and immediate arrest and imprisonment in a maximum security facility.
It appears, however, that Zygier was killed in the Israeli prison since Mossad was convinced, and enraged, that he was feeding information to Hezbollah elements.
This is while the entire maximum security prison, except the toilets in solitary cells, is under a 24-hour video monitoring.
The Israeli regime claimed two months ago that Zygier had used a bed sheet to hang himself inside his cell’s toilet. . -www.shafaqna.com/English

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – The Anonymous hacking group says it has hacked into the website of Israel‘s Mossad spy agency, gaining access to top-secret documents.
The Internet hacking group said on its twitter page that it gained access to the personal data of more than 30,000 Israeli officials, including military officials, politicians and Mossad agents, and that it will release the information gradually.
Hacking group Anonymous has launched a series of cyber attacks against Israeli websites since November 2012 in retaliation for Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.
Anonymous said it had launched the OpIsrael campaign following threats by Tel Aviv to cut all Gaza's telecommunication links.
OpIsrael campaign aims at wiping Israel off the cyber world by April 7.
Shortly after the pro-Palestinian campaign was launched, dozens of Israeli websites were defaced or attacked.
Many of the sites had their homepages replaced with messages in support of Hamas and the Palestinians.-www.shafaqna.com/English
SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) –Lebanon’s resistance movement of Hezbollah has arrested a Lebanese national in the city of Baalbek on charges of cooperating with Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency.
The arrested Lebanese national currently resides in Hezbollah’s security compound in the city, a Lebanese TV channel reported on Wednesday.
More than 100 people have been arrested in Lebanon on suspicion of collaborating with Mossad since April 2009, including members of the security forces and telecommunications employees.
Tel Aviv has launched an intelligence war against Hezbollah following its defeat during the 33-day war against the Lebanese resistance movement in 2006.
In late January, a top military court in Lebanon charged a Lebanese national with collaborating with the Israeli spying agency and passing information on the whereabouts of the Hezbollah leader.
The man identified by Lebanese media as Talal Khalil reportedly disclosed information to Israel about security bases belonging to the Hezbollah resistance movement.
Lebanon’s state-run National News Agency said the accused had been in contact with Israel since 2001 and could face a death sentence.-www.shfaqna.com/English

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) — Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan says a potential “Israeli” military aggression against Iran’s nuclear energy facilities would be the ‘stupidest idea ever heard.’
"An attack on Iran now before exploring all other approaches is not the right way how to do it \[sic],” Dagan said in an interview with CBS's 60 Minutes program on Sunday.
The remarks by the ex-spy chief come as “Israel” has recently stepped up their rhetoric against the Islamic Republic of Iran, threatening the country with military action to halt its peaceful nuclear energy program.
“Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and its war minister Ehud Barak have been pushing the UK and US to take a tougher line against Iran.
The US, “Israel” and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear energy program.
Iran has refuted the allegations maintaining that as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a devoted member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it has every right to develop and acquire the nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
Iranian officials have also promised a crushing response to any act of aggression against the Islamic Republic.
The head of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad-Ali Ja’fari said on Sunday that Iran will give a ‘clear response’ to the Zionist regime of “Israel” if it dares to attack Iran.
“Our response to “Israel” is clear. I believe nothing will remain of “Israel” in case of an attack \[on Iran] and considering its small size and vulnerabilities to the large number of Iranian missiles it is unlikely that any place will be left intact in “Israel”,” Ja’fari said.—www.shafaqna.com/English
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
