Report: Mossad continues to use foreign passports
Agents of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency reportedly are still using foreign passports to conduct undercover operations in other countries.
According to a report Sunday in The Times of London, new evidence shows that foreign nationals residing in Israel are willingly allowing the Mossad to use their passports.
Several Israelis interviewed by The Times revealed details of how they were approached by Mossad officials about the possibility of volunteering their passports for the Mossad.
In January 2010, it was suspected that Israeli agents used foreign passports to travel undercover into Dubai in order to assassinate Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.
Following the assassination, Dubai police officials revealed that British, French, German and Australian passports were used by the assassination team.
