Israeli Police Arrest Mossad Spy on “Training Exercise” After He Placed “Fake Bomb” Under Car

December 2nd, 2009

Mmm hmm. Israel better mobilize the brave Ziofascist Twitbook forces to clear this one up.

Via: BBC:

A trainee spy for Israel’s secret service agency Mossad was arrested by Tel Aviv police while taking part in a training operation, media reports say.

The young trainee was spotted by a female passer-by as he planted a fake bomb under a vehicle in the city.

He was only able to persuade police he was a spy after being taken in by an officer for questioning on Monday.

The authorities have refused to comment on the story although Israeli media outlets have expressed their surprise.

‘Just a drill’

Mossad does not tell local uniformed police about its training exercises.

The country’s commercial Channel 10 said it hoped the agency’s operatives were “more effective abroad”, AFP news agency reported.

Niva Ben-Harush, the woman who reported the novice’s suspicious behaviour to police, told Ynet News that 15 minutes after she made the call, Tel Aviv’s port was closed and people evacuated.

She said police initially asked her to come with them and identify the suspect.

“But after a few minutes, they told me it was just a drill,” she said.

Up to three agency employees were believed to have been suspended following the incident, Ynet reported.

It quoted the prime minister’s office as saying it did “not respond to information about such activities undertaken by security agencies or attributed to them”.

    The glaring question that isn’t answered is Who’s car was it? Was it a dummy vehicle, or was it registered to someone of interest?

    This from YNET News (,00.html ):

    “At a certain point, when the police took out the robot to neutralize the bomb, a man jumped out and said that he is from a government agency and that it was just a drill. I spoke to this man and told him that he caused me damage [because during the panic patrons left his restaurant without paying], but he refused to identify himself. He took my phone number and the manager’s phone number. However, in the meantime, no one has contacted me”

    So evidently they waited until after the port had been closed, after the panic had died down, after the police bomb-squad showed up, AFTER the robot had been unloaded and mobilized….only then did someone stepped forward and call off this “training exercise”. And that person wouldn’t reveal his name or credentials.

    Operatives of an agency so secret that its identity is unknown even to those who created it.
