These are undated photographs, released by Israel’s security service, from Belgian-Iranian businessman Ali Mansouri’s camera.
The Shin Bet (GSS) said it arrested Mansouri—who entered Israel with a Belgian passport under the name Alex Mans—because he was sent by Iran to spy on Israel, pretending to be a windows and roofing salesman.
So, this is what spook pics look like. I don’t know. maybe he was planning—or suggesting—to plant bombs in all these places. The picture of the empty Ben Gurion terminal is sad. The rest look like something you shoot when you get your first camera.
They actually look like pictures a windows and roofing guy might take.
The Iranians were going to pay him a million dollars for these pictures.
