A former Israeli Mossad agent revealed how they reused an abandoned Italian diving resort on the Sudanese shore of the Red Sea to smuggle Ethiopian Jews to Israel in the 1970s.
Gad Shimron, a former Mossad agent, was interviewed for ILTV.tv, revealing the steps that brought the Mossad to act within Sudan, an Arab, hostile country toward Israel, to help bring Jewish Ethiopian Jews who had fled a fierce civil war in Ethiopia to Israel.
