Arab Israeli's father: ISIS falsely accused son of being Mossad agent

February 14, 2015 08:52

The father of an Israel Arab youth rejected on Friday a claim made by Islamic State that his son had been operating as a Mossad agent spying on the radical group, which prompted his purported capture.

The most recent issue of the jihadi group's online English-language magazine Dabiq featured an alleged interview with the said spy, 19-year-old Muhammad Sai’d Ismail Musallam from east Jerusalem.

Musallam's father, Said, told AFP that his son was innocent. 

"IS accused him of working for Mossad because he tried to run away," he told AFP. He added that his son was "absolutely not religious."
