Fort the first time, and in an official statement, Israel admitted that its Mosad agents assassinated Palestinian novelist, short-story writer, and dramatist Ghassan Kanafani in 1973 by plating explosives in his car.
Kanafani was not the only one who was assassinated in an operation which targeted several Palestinian and Arab figures.
The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth published a report by Eitan Haber, which revealed information on the assassination carried out by Israel against Kanafani and other operations it carried out in Arab countries, after Israeli Athletes were killed at München Airport during the Olympic Games in München – Germany, in 1972.
Haber, who served as the spokesperson of the slain Israeli Prime Minister Ishaq Rabin, and the man who wrote Rabin’s speeches, along with Michael Bar Zohar, published a book, entitled “The Pursue of the Red Prince”.
Yedioth Ahronoth reported that after a Palestinian group abducted 11 Israeli athletes who participated in München Olympics, the German police killed some of the Palestinians and all of the Israeli athletes.
