According to an Italian book on Israeli Mossad spies “SERVIZI SEGRETI VENTI MISSIONI, Mossad, le spie ” (TWENTY SECRET MISSIONS of the Secret Service) Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh was assassinated in Damascus after visiting his mistress Nuhad Haidar.
According to the book , no one ever knew what Mughniyeh looked like because he had several facial plastic surgery operations , but Mossad knew he only moved freely in Tehran and Damascus and every time he went to the Syrian capital he always saw his mistress without being accompanied by any bodyguards.
Prior to traveling to Damascus the Mossad agents succeeded in photographing him with a mobile phone.
The photograph was sent to the Mossad office in Tel Aviv for verification of his identity.
Mughniyeh was assassinated on February 12, 2008. A bomb placed in a taxi car exploded next to his Pajero .
Mossad reportedly also tried to assassinate in Amman Jordan Hamas Chief Khaled Meshaal in 1987 by poisoning him.
These are reportedly only two of the most daring Mossad missions according to the book that was written by 2 Mossad spies Michael Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal
