The Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security service, revealed the 16 March arrest of an Israeli citizen  indicted on charges of spying for Iran. According to a statement, “the results of the [Shin Bet] investigation indicate the depth of ties between Iran and the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) and their efforts to carry out espionage and terrorist activities within Israel, even during the global fight against the coronavirus pandemic that has spread so badly in Iran… This investigation demonstrates that once again Iran and its proxies are working to recruit and exploit Israeli civilians to work for Iran”.
