‘Mossad chief faces axe over Dubai fiasco’
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Jerusalem, June 26: Israel’s long-time super spy Meir Dagan, who heads the country’s ultra secretive Mossad, is likely to step down in three months time apparently because of an international furore over the Dubai killing of a top Hamas commander.
Dagan, the chief of Israel’s espionage agency has served as Mossad Director since 2002 and was dubbed as the man of the year two years ago by the Israeli media.
But the Dubai fiasco seems to have cast a shadow over his tenure, with the government denying him another extension, after the expiry of his term in 90 days.
Mossad’s activities came in for severe international criticism after the January assassination of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai, widely believed to have been carried out by Mossad agents using forged foreign passports.
