The wife of a security guard working at the Lebanese parliament is alleged to have maintained ties with the Mossad, according to a report which appeared Thursday.

The Lebanese newspaper al-Joumhouria reported that the Israeli intelligence agency had recruited the guard’s wife four years ago.

The woman’s alleged links to Mossad were discovered during the course of Beirut authorities’ investigation of her husband, who was subsequently exonerated.

According to al-Joumhouria, the woman was assigned numerous tasks, including photographing buildings and institutions in and around the parliament building in downtown Beirut.

The alleged spy was recruited through social media and paid a small sum of money, according to the report.

Israeli espionage has reportedly been quite active in Lebanon, according to recent reports.

Last year, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai reported that an Israeli spy infiltrated the highest levels of the Shi’ite group Hezbollah and thwarted attacks against Israel.



The man, known as “M.Sh.,” caused great damage to the Shi’ite organization, and his arrest was seen by the Hezbollah leadership as an important achievement.
