Alleged Mossad agent arrested in Poland

Uri Brodsky

"Uri Brodsky"

By IAN ALLEN | intelNews.org |
Authorities in Poland have detained an alleged Israeli agent who may be connected with the assassination of a senior Hamas operative last January. German newsmagazine Der Spiegel quoted anonymous government prosecutors in Berlin, who said the man works for Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, and was arrested upon arriving in Poland on June 4. The alleged agent, whose travel documents identify him as “Uri Brodsky”, is wanted by German prosecutors for using a forged German passport to enter Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in January of this year. He then joined a team of Mossad assassins to kill Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a Hamas weapons procurer, who was found dead in his luxury hotel room on January 20. The question now is whether Polish authorities will extradite “Brodsky” to Germany, or whether they will give in to intense Israeli pressure to deport him to Israel. It appears that the Polish government was very close to a deal with Israel on the evening of June 11, at which point German officials deliberately leaked news of “Brodky’s” arrest to Der Spiegel, in an attempt to embarrass the Polish government. Israeli and Polish authorities have confirmed that an Israeli citizen has been arrested on Polish soil, but are so far refusing to elaborate. Speaking to the Associated Press, a German official said that it was now “up to the Poles to decide if they are going to hand [‘Brodsky’] over” to Berlin.

    Ireland to expel Israeli diplomat

    “Ireland is to expel an Israeli diplomat over the use of forged passports in the assassination of a senior Hamas official in Dubai, allegedly by Israeli agents, the Irish foreign minister has announced.

    Micheal Martin said an investigation had showed that the eight Irish passports used by suspects in the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh earlier this year were forgeries.

    In a statement on Tuesday, Martin said Israel had been “requested to withdraw a designated member of staff of its embassy” and that he believed this would “be quickly acceded to”. ”
