Alam Facilitated Escape of Mossad Officer, Provided Israel with Photos of Lebanon, Syria
Interrogation with retired security officer arrested for spying for Israel has revealed that Brig. Gen. Adib al-Alam sent pictures of Lebanon and Syria to Israel.
Pan-Arab daily al-Hayat on Monday said Alam had stored the pictures in two small refrigerators.
It said one fridge included pictures of Syrian institutions, while the other contained photos of international highways linking Beirut with Damascus.
Al-Hayat said police intelligence have also confiscated a third fridge that contained pictures from Syria.
It said Alam succeeded in transmitting the pictures to the Israeli secret service, the Mossad, "at the proper time."
Al-Hayat said Alam also facilitated the escape of a Mossad officer who supervised the twin killings of two Islamic Jihad commanders, brothers Mahmoud and Nidal al-Majzoub, in a 2006 bombing attack in the southern city of Sidon.
Alam said he used to leave “some tapes" at specific locations inside Lebanese territories and that the Mossad would "lay hands on them and take them to Israel."
