If necessary, Israel is ready to provide any needed aid to solve the hostage problem in Moscow, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told Russian Ambassador Gennedy Tarasov.
Sharon also says that Israel “declares its universal support of the Russian-led war against terrorism in Chechnya.” The Israeli prime minister expressed his sympathy and support of the Russian people and President Putin.
The Hebrew word Mossad (the name can be translated into Russian as the Institute for Analytical and Special Services, or just the Institute) is as clear to any educated man as the Russian word for the English “satellite.” The Mossad is Israel’s calling card, not only its special service.
Catch of Eichmann; the tragic fate of super agent Eli Kohen; the legendary raid to Beirut, which ended in liquidation of the Palestine terrorist leaders; the release of hostages on Entebbe; the liquidation of the Iraqi nuclear reactor; and many actions of this kind have already gone down in the history of special services. The Mossad is the department of foreign political intelligence, Israel’s equivalent of the CIA.
As for the Entebbe operation in 1976, for the release of hostages from the plane hijacked on Entebbe (Uganda), the Mossad collected information by sending its agents and with effective cover to the hostage release operation. Armed forces provided all necessary material and technical support for the operation; they sent an assault detachment especially for the operation. Israel’s commandos neutralized the guards of the Uganda army, liquidated the terrorists, within a 53-minute operation, and returned to Israel together with the released hostages (one commando and three hostages were killed during the operation).
