A former high-ranking Israeli intelligence official said Israel has spied on several Arab countries, adding that Egypt is the Arab country where Israeli intelligence is "very active."
Speaking to Israel's Channel 7 on Wednesday, former head of the IDF Military Intelligence Directorate Amos Yaldin said the Jewish state had penetrated a lot of Arab countries.
He cited Egypt, Morocco, Iraq, Sudan, Tunisia, Yemen and Syria as among the countries Israel spies on.
Yadlin, who headed the IDF Military Intelligence Directorate between 2006 and 2010, did not elaborate on the specific period during which Israel had spied on these countries.
Israeli intelligence has become more capable in influencing the course of social, political and economic events in these countries, claimed Yadlin, who heads the Institute for National Security Studies at the University of Tel Aviv.
