- The official said meetings would often occur at night, away from the eyes of the world.
Danny Yatom, the former chief of Israel’s intelligence agency, Mossad, revealed that former Israeli prime ministers frequently met Arab leaders secretly, sometimes disguised in women’s clothing.
Speaking to a local Israeli radio station, Yatom gave examples about such meetings with Arab leaders, including the late Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem, Jordan’s late King Hussein, and his brother Prince Hassan.
As he commented on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s secret visit to Saudi Arabia and meeting with Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman (MbS), Yatom said such meetings would often occur at night, away from the eyes of the world.
According to Yatom, on one occasion, the late Israeli Prime Minister Ishak Rabin dispatched him and then Chief of Staff Ehud Barak to Washington to meet with Muallem and the former Syrian army Chief of Staff, Hikmat Shehabi, to discuss potential peace negotiations.
He and Barak were disguised as women, wearing wigs and women’s clothing, and they took a commercial flight to Washington, he revealed.
Muallem, who was the Syrian ambassador to Washington at the time, pledged during that meeting, according to Yatom, that no terror attacks would be launched from Syria after signing a peace deal.
Lauding the meeting with Bin Salman, he said that Saudi Arabia, which does not have official relations with Israel but leads the ‘Sunni’ camp and is the largest country in the peninsula, is strategically vital for Israel.
“That is why I am happy and thankful to everyone who contributed to this,” he added.
