Mossad Tipped Cyprus On Terrorist

Cypriot law enforcement officials were reportedly warned by the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad a Lebanese-Canadian man had bomb-making material in his house, leading to his apprehension.

The Kuwaiti newspaper Al Jarida quoted exclusive sources who said that the Mossad passed the information on, fearing an attack on Iraeli sites in Cyprus.

The still unidentified suspect, who’s in detention, had two tons of ammonium nitrate in his basement and he was accused of planning terror attacks on Israeli sites using the chemically explosive material.

The arrested man is also suspected of working with Hezbollah in Lebanon and even being in contact with the group’s leader Hassan Nasrallah, it was reported.

Sources cited in the Al Jarida report claimed that the Mossad had closely followed the man’s movements for some time after receiving a tip that he was planning an attack.

Al Jarida also said it was told that the suspected Hezbollah operative was scouting out Israeli targets in Larnaca and that he was seen just meters from the house of the Israeli Ambassador to Cyprus.

According to the newspaper, the Mossad informed authorities in Cyprus only after they knew that the man had acquired the massive amounts of ammonium nitrate.

An Israeli source reportedly told Al Jarida that the Mossad was listening in on the suspect’s phone conversations, including those of a personal nature made while in Cyprus.
