Algiers-The Algerian security services have arrested an Israeli, declared lost in North Africa for five days and who would have entered in Algeria with a false Spanish passport.
March 27 2010
According to the Israeli newspaper « Yediot Aharonot » in its Friday edition, the man would have disappeared in a region in North Africa and there is concern that he is kidnapped by terrorist groups. The latter would have contacted his family before his disappearance a week ago, announcing that he was fine and that he was arrested by Algerian security services and questioned on the purpose of his entry into Algeria.
The Israeli newspaper which did not disclose the identity of the man, in an interview with his family, said that he was undergoing interrogation by the Algerian security services who have suspected him of being a spy.
Furthermore, and according to informed sources, the security services have arrested the spy, who holds a Spanish passport, after they had noticed a visa for entry and exit of an Israeli airport on the passport. The security guard then led him into a police station for identity verification.
According to the sources, the Spanish authorities have not reported the disappearance of any of their nationals on Algerian territory until today, which casts doubts on the true identity of the man, especially with the non – recognition of Israel by Algeria and the ban on Israeli nationals to enter Algeria, the latter is subject of questioning by security services for verification of identity, especially after the announcement by the Israeli Department of Foreign Affairs for the disappearance of one of its nationals in North Africa, who seems to be the same person.
According to observers, he is part of a plan for Israel’s Mossad to spy Algeria and is on a mission in southern Algeria in an attempt to infiltrate the GSPC’s Salafist groups which make the interest of European intelligence services in the Sahel region. The Algerian security authorities were not informed of his visit to the south, as the law says to every stranger visiting these places in order to provide security, particularly with the wave of kidnappings of foreign tourists in this region. The second hypothesis, according to experts, is that the spy is on a mission in order to make new recruits in southern Algeria where there are foreign nationals working in international companies and who may detain important information on Algeria.
Details on the arrested Israeli spy in Hassi Messaoud
March 28 2010
Algiers, according to corroborating sources, the Israeli spy who was arrested by Algerian security services in downtown Hassi Messaoud, is named Alberto and aged 35. He would have entered in Algeria with a false Spanish passport.
According to sources of Ennahar, the Israeli spy who claimed to be a Spanish citizen, had entry visas to Algerian territory through a European embassy before joining the Algerian capital via Barcelona.
While the Algerian authorities have begun investigations into the conditions for granting visas to an Israeli national, with a false Spanish passport, senior U.S. government have reacted with Algerian authorities in order to find a way out to the situation where this pseudo Spanish national who appears according to his behavior as an agent of the Israeli Mossad.
According to the sources, the deputy directo of the Federal Bureau (FBI), John Pistole visited Algeria last Thursday on a mission to the Algerian authorities in the case of the Israeli national who found refuge at the U.S. embassy to seek help, as there are no diplomatic relations between Algeria and Israel. On the other hand, the Algerian authorities have realized that the man named Alberto was not Spanish as he claimed but an Israeli Mossad agent.
No information has been disclosed so far on this surprise visit, announced unilaterally by the U.S. Embassy in Algiers without consultation with the Algerian authorities.
The Israeli spy had remained in Hassi Messaoud for ten days before his arrest early last week by security services in central city of Hassi Messaoud, near the study office of an Egyptian who works with an oil company. He was staying at the hotel “Ourdjabane” usually frequented by workers of oil companies and foreigners. The hotel is located in the neighborhood , and another hotel located in the industrial zone in Hassi Messaoud, which receives European, especially French working in the region. Both hotels are owned by private and are not classified.
The spy has a good command of Arabic language and frequents the neighborhoods. He claimed to be Muslim and prays at the mosque “Bilal Ibn Rabah” in Hassi Messaoud. He also frequents popular café and asks people he meets on the prices of sugar and semolina, and also on the Islamists and the bearded, oil companies, employment and unemployment.
Seems Israel has not learned it’s lesson about using passports from other countries. I certainly hope Spain will not tolerate this type of identity theft and use of fake passports from their country.
Anyone caught using a fake passport, should be prosecuted to the full extent of the Law.
Israel should also be punished as well.
They continue to break the Law. They will never change.
One has to wonder when the World leaders will realize that?
Mossad ‘Regularly’ Faked Australian Passports
Former Mossad case officer Victor Ostrovsky told ABC public radio that the spy agency had used Australian passports for previous operations before last month’s assassination of a top Hamas commander in Dubai that has been blamed on Israel.
He said agents had little trouble passing themselves off as Australians as few people in the Middle East have much knowledge about the country.
