Lebanese Website: Mossad Operated in Syrian Border City

Members of Israel's Mossad intelligence agency participated this week in the fighting for the Syrian city of Yabroud, near the Lebanese border, according to a Friday report by the Beirut-based Elnashra online newspaper. Government troops, assisted by Hezbollah terrorists, retook the city from opposition forces.

In an effort coordinated with the rebel Free Syrian Army, a special Mossad team infiltrated the city. At the same time, Israel Air Force planes attacked the village of Janta on the Lebanese side of the border as a diversionary tactic.
