In a vile act against Israel, a group of Iranian hackers recently published a video on an anonymous Telegram channel featuring personal photos and documents allegedly obtained from a phone used by the wife of Mossad Director David Barnea.
The video was posted on the “Open Hands” channel, which according to Israeli media was created on Tuesday. “We’ve got a small gift for the Mossad; ‘With LOVE for David’. Happy Purim,” a post on the channel read, referring to the Jewish holiday celebrated this week.
As it stands, the Iranian owners of the video claimed to have obtained the information in a “lengthy intelligence operation” against Barnea, which began in 2014. Barnea was named head of the Israeli intelligence agency in June 2021.
What’s more is that the channel also published a quote from the Koran and a promise that more personal information on the Mossad chief would be released soon, but as of Thursday, the channel had only about 100 viewers.
Reacting to the video, the Mossad said it was investigating the issue, but also added that “this is old information.”
The video has captions in Hebrew, Arabic and English, and includes photos apparently taken on a family vacation in Copenhagen in 2014, a photocopy of his I.D. card, tax documents, plane tickets and a satellite picture of what the hackers claim to be his home in central Israel.
