‘Mossad Spy’ Tied To Mughniyeh Hit (Jerusalem Post)

“Lebanese authorities are investigating the possibility that a Lebanese citizen arrested on suspicion of spying for Israel had been involved in the assassination of Hizbullah terror chief Imad Mughniyeh, the Lebanese English-language Daily Star reported on Monday. The Lebanese daily Al Akhbar revealed the suspect’s name as Ali Jarrah, and reported that he was arrested in south Beirut after evidence showed that he had been following senior figures in Hizbullah.

Jarrah has confessed to his involvement in the crimes attributed to him, the paper reported. Sources involved in the investigation were quoted as saying that Jarrah was inducted into the Mossad in the mid-1980s and was charged with gathering information on Palestinian organizations operating in Lebanon and Syria. The Jerusalem Post could not independently confirm the reports. Mossad, the sources said, had supplied Jarrah with advanced technological means with which to keep track of senior Hizbullah leaders.

The report also claimed that Jarrah’s brother, Yusuf, was arrested on suspicion that he had assisted his brother. The Daily Star quoted a security source as saying that the two were related to Ziad Jarrah, a Lebanese man who was among the hijackers of United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed into a Pennsylvania field on September 11, 2001.”
