An Egyptian public prosecutor charged two Israelis and two Egyptians with spying for Israel’s Mossad. “The public prosecutor ordered Ramzy Mohamed, Sahar Ibrahim, Samuel Ben Zeev and David Wisemen-two officers in the Israeli Mossad-to be sent to a Cairo criminal court for spying for the interests of the state of Israel,” the prosecutor said in a statement.
The two Egyptians are accused of giving information about Egypt to the Israelis with “the intent of damaging national interests in exchange for money and gifts.”
The statement said that the two Egyptians admitted they had “committed the crime of spying for Israel” during investigations, but the statement did not clarify whether or not the two Israelis were detained while in Israel and if they confessed to the crimes they are accused of. The government of Israel has not yet issued a reaction.
