Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida has written that Israel spies on the United States and other countries.

The daily quoted a security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, the Middle Eastern leaders are under constant surveillance and try to switch means of communication.

The official added that the scope of Israeli wiretapping is close to that of the US.

The Israel as “aggressor” narrative cites a Le Monde report last week that produced a document in which NSA officials briefed French intelligence that neither they nor four other close allies had breached the Élysée’s communications, but then hinted to the French that Israel could have been responsible.

Next, this narrative cites a five-page document, titled “Memorandum of Understanding between the NSA and its Israeli counterpart (the ISNU),” disclosed by The Guardian in September, which indicated that the US sends “unminimized” communications to Israel, including that of US citizens.

Meanwhile, in other event, a Saudi court convicted a Jordanian citizen of spying for Israel and sentenced him to nine years in jail and 80 lashes, a pro-government Saudi newspaper reported on Wednesday.

"The suspect gave his reply orally, admitting he had communicated with Israel, saying he did not full mental capacities due to the hashish and the pills," al-Riyadh daily reported.
