Three spy networks were operating in Cairo and several other Egyptian cities gathering security and military intelligence, especially from the Sinai, according to Egyptian sources cited in a report by the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Rai on Tuesday.

Egyptian security services arrested 17 people of various nationalities that had a “direct relationship with the Israeli intelligence service, the Mossad,” stated the sources.

Some of those detained were working under diplomatic cover.

Some of the spies were captured carrying a large quantity of images of military installations and vehicles.

The spies also gathered information regarding the country’s economic situation.
