3rd Alleged CIA Agent is Cadre in Hizbullah’s Telecom Network
The third alleged CIA agent that has confessed to spying on Hizbullah is a cadre in the Shiite party’s telecommunications network, al-Mustaqbal daily reported Sunday.
Last month, Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah announced that members of his group had confessed to being CIA agents and accused Israel of turning to the U.S. spy agency when it failed to infiltrate his party.
In the first such acknowledgment of infiltration since the group's founding in the 1980s, Nasrallah refused to disclose the identities of the two party members but said a third case was under investigation.
Al-Mustaqbal said that the third man whose initials are A.A.B. hails from the town of Maaroub in Tyre but he had left it more than 20 years ago. He worked in the telecom network mainly in Beirut’s southern suburbs.
The newspaper added that the number of people accused by Hizbullah of collaborating with the CIA had reached 13.
