Israel Says It Has Caught Alleged Iranian Spy

Israel’s domestic security service says it has arrested a Belgian citizen of Iranian origin who it claims has admitted he was sent to Israel to spy for Iran.

A statement by the Shin Bet says Ali Mansouri, who entered Israel under the name Alex Mans, was sent by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force to set up business ties in Israel as a front for spying.

The Shin Bet said Mansouri made three visits to Israel since 2012 in the guise of a windows and roofing salesman. The Shin Bet said Mansouri was caught with photographs he took of the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.

The Shin Bet said Sunday it arrested Mansouri three weeks ago at the airport.

A lawyer for Mansouri could not immediately be contacted.
