Israeli official denies report that Mossad followed 9/11 terrorists

By Agencies and Ha’aretz Service

ISRAELI ambassador to the U.S. Danny Ayalon on Thursday rejected a report published by the German newspaper Die Zeit, according to which Israeli Mossad agents tracked the perpetrators of the September 11 terror attacks for an extended period of time, and passed over information on them to the CIA and the U.S. administration.

Ayalon said in an interview on Army Radio that there were no Mossad agents operating in the United States.

According to the Die Zeit report, which is to be published Friday, the CIA ignored the information on the terrorists and deported the Mossad agents.

The agents rented an apartment in Florida in December 2000, close to the apartments of Mohammed Atta and Marwan al Shehhi, both of whom were aboard the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center.

According to the paper, the agents followed Atta and al Shehhi, discovered that they were taking flying lessons at the Florida Airman flight school and passed the information on to the U.S. administration.square
