Earlier this year, Israeli forces arrested a Jordanian citizen who was reportedly acting as a spy in Israel and the West Bank on behalf of Iranian intelligence, Israel’s Shin Bet security service revealed Thursday.
Thirty-two-year-old Jordanian national Thaer Shafut was allegedly commissioned to the West Bank last year “on behalf of Iranian intelligence to carry out missions that were meant to establish a network in Israel and the West Bank, which would be used for covert operations for the Iranians,” the Shin Bet said, the Times of Israel reported.
