Israeli Spy Iyad Youssef An’eim has confessed to working for the Israeli Mossad and providing them with information that facilitated the assassination of the martyr Imad Mughniyeh.
In his confessions broadcast Saturday by the Syrian TV, An’eim, who was born in 1976 in Amman, Jordan and holds dual citizenship, the Jordanian and Palestinian, said he studied philosophy in the Lattakia-based Tishreen University from 1995 to 2000.
“In mid-2006 I was recruited, then I was asked to head for Syria in the beginning of 2007, after I was trained by an Israeli Mossad officer named Dawood along with another group of Mossad officers in the occupied Jerusalem,” the Israeli spy said.
He said he was given Belgian SIM card and used to communicate with those who recruited him weekly via the telephone.
“They asked me to provide them with information about inhabitants in Lattakia, their works, activities and about the sects there … They were interested in the demographic construction of the city,” An’eim said.
He went on to say that on February 4th, he headed for Damascus to collect information about diplomatic bodies and headquarters for Hizbollah and Hamas.
The Israeli spy said they asked him to make sure that there was a silver Pajero car next to an apartment in a bystreet in Damascus.
“I called and told them about the Pajero and its number then left the area,” he said, adding “As I read the news on the Internet the next day I found out that martyr Imad Mughniyeh was assassinated. It was the same Pajero, “An’eim said.
After he heard the news, An’eim said he went to Jordan and then to Jerusalem where he asked those who recruited him to change his telephone number. He was given a French SIM card and returned to Syria.
He also mentioned that they asked him to bring information about Tartous and Lattakia ports, the ships, containers, their loads and where they come from.
The Israeli spy continued supplying information to Israel until he was arrested.
Political Analysts: Spy’s Confessions Prove Israel’s Work to Subvert Arab Communities
Jordanian political analyst Ibrahim Naji Alloush said the arrest of the Israeli spy in Syria dealt a counterblow to the Israeli enemy and confirmed that the Mossad works on penetrating the Arab communities to subvert and destabilize them from the inside and target the Resistance leaders, which goes in line with the ongoing effort to destabilize Syria.
Political analyst and researcher Amin Huteit from Lebanon said An’eim’s confessions proved by evidence Israel’s involvement in the assassination of martyr Imad Mughniyeh and confirmed its role in the events in Syria.
Huteit said the Israeli spy was assigned with a preliminary mission to conduct a detailed survey of the Syrian inside and draw a social and security map to be later consummated in order to enable the Israeli enemy to know the places vulnerable to foreign interference and prepare the stage for foreign conspiracy in the form of attack against Syria.
For his part, Jordanian political analyst Rasmi Al-Jaberi said that Syria and the Resistance are two sides of one coin, which reflects the open war on Syria over the many years of the conflict with the Israeli enemy.
