[Wednesday June 26, 2013] The Egyptian security forces stated that six Israeli Arabs and three Egyptians, apprehended in Egypt, are currently facing trial for spying for Israel.Egyptian Prosecutor, Hisham Kharmouty, moved the nine defendants to a Criminal Court for what the prosecution calls “passing sensitive security information to a foreign country”.

The charges are regarding information on Egyptian security centers in the Sinai Peninsula, and siege-busting tunnels on the border with Gaza.

It is worth mentioning that Egypt managed to uncover various Israeli spy cells on its soil despite the 1979 peace agreement signed between Tel Aviv and Cairo.
