Paper IDs Two Agents Who Worked in Italy with Zygier


German newspaper Der Spiegel reported on Tuesday that it has identified the front company where Ben Zygier worked in Italy while he was engaged in a covert Mossad operation, along with two other alleged Mossad agents of Jewish-Australian descent known as Paul Y and David Z.

According to the report, "Zygier and two other Australian Jews who also worked for the Milan firm were reported to have been successful agents." 

The paper also quoted an Australian intelligence source who alleged, "The nature of their business gave them access to military and secret installations."
