A trainee spy for Israel's secret service agency Mossad was arrested by Tel Aviv police while taking part in a training operation, media reports say.

The young trainee was spotted by a female passer-by as he planted a fake bomb under a vehicle in the city.

He was only able to persuade police he was a spy after being taken in by an officer for questioning on Monday.

The authorities have refused to comment on the story although Israeli media outlets have expressed their surprise.

'Just a drill'

Mossad does not tell local uniformed police about its training exercises.

The country's commercial Channel 10 said it hoped the agency's operatives were "more effective abroad", AFP news agency reported.

Niva Ben-Harush, the woman who reported the novice's suspicious behaviour to police, told Ynet News that 15 minutes after she made the call, Tel Aviv's port was closed and people evacuated.

She said police initially asked her to come with them and identify the suspect.

"But after a few minutes, they told me it was just a drill," she said..

Up to three agency employees were believed to have been suspended following the incident, Ynet reported.

It quoted the prime minister's office as saying it did "not respond to information about such activities undertaken by security agencies or attributed to them".



  1. A fake bomb in Tel Aviv, but in Iraq,Gaza,Afghanistan and elsewhere, make no mistake, the Mossad is setting off car bombs and staging false flag ops. I also hear that Mossad was constantly flummoxed by Arafat's strategies as he flitted between Arab capitals. It had little or no warning where he would turn up, or whom he would next rally to his side.

  2. Caught by mistake practicing a dry run? ''Through deceit you shall wage war''. Wonder whose motto this is.

  3. Same as the USS Liberty, USS Cole-only 2 Nations had the type of explosives used on the USS Cole, America & jewsreal. Search History of Isreali False Flag Ops n spell it as isreal n You will get a link with many events by these terrists-also all the car/tuck bombs & IED's-the detonators r Motorola Phones-Made in jewsreal then search Verint/Amdocs spying on every phone in America, then if You want the shock of Your life-search jew traitors & learn of the extent the jews have occupied Our Gov't. Then look at the kenyan & the executine branch-tis all CFR & dual isreali's. Rahm served in the isreali army & took the IDF oath, by swearing allegiance to another country-he has lost American Citizenship. Ask how some 2000 jewish ppl knew not to be inthe towers on 911 or why silverstein knew to insure the towers for a terrist attack by airplanes & on 911 "miised" his usual breakfast in the towers restaurant. Ask how bldg 7 fell-if the demolitioon chagres were pre-installed, this is an act of premeditated murder & terrorism by a country the sucks $7,000,000.oo per day from US Aid & ask why isreal is exempt as NO country with WMD shall not recieve any form of US Aid-200-300 nukes excludes isreal from any US Aid. There is also the murder of Rachael Cory by the IDF-an innocent American Grrl, deliberatly run over by a bull doser-same as the IDF kills 2000 yr old olive tress, ruins farmers fields, their home to entire cities-then herds them into Gaza & claim it's like shooting fish in a barrel-this is why there is a world boycott of all isreali products-simply watch for Bar Code 729
