‘Mossad cooperates with Saudis, Bahrain’
Israel says its Mossad spying agency has close cooperation with Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
A report published on the Israeli military’s official website said that other countries that cooperate with Tel Aviv are the United Arab Emirates, Afghanistan and the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The report claimed that Bahrain has been providing Israel with intelligence on Iranian and Palestinian organizations.
The report also highlights the growing secret cooperation with Saudi Arabia, claiming that Mossad has been in direct contact with Saudi intelligence about Iran’s nuclear energy program.
The report says Tel Aviv has gathered intelligence on Iran through sources in Azerbaijan.
In 2011, the New York Times revealed that Israel had facilitated an arms deal between Germany and Saudi Arabia in a bid to improve relations with Riyadh.
Israel also sold a variety of military equipment including radars and machinery to the United Arab Emirates.
The countries mentioned in the report have not yet commented on it.
