The State Specialized Penal Prosecution has just completed its investigations with three people accused of spying for Israel and their case will soon be referred to the Penal Court for trial. 

Informed official sources revealed that the three individuals admitted to their crime, spying for the Israeli intelligence, Mossad. The sources added that the suspects used to contact the Israeli Prime Minister's Office and Israeli Intelligence Agencies and showed readiness to provide them with information over the net.

Moreover, the Israelis accepted the suspects' offer; however, they conditioned that they work regionally for them and not just to provide information about Yemen.

Two months ago, a security source noted that the terrorist cell whose members were arrested last October, belonging to Islamic Jihad Organizations have connections with the Israeli intelligence, hinting that the organizations have posted different threats to target foreign and Arab embassies in Yemen including the embassies of Saudi Arabia, America, Britain and United Arab Emirates. 

The source also revealed correspondence between one of the cell members and Israel where the former sought financial support to launch terrorist operations in Yemen.
