Zionist regime authorized sale of spyware to Saudis: Report
A report in the Washington Post says the Zionist government was directly involved in the sale of sophisticated spyware to Saudi Arabia to help the kingdom purge and assassinate dissidents.
AVA- The Post said in its report that Zionist’s ministry of military affairs had authorized the NSO Group to sell Pegasus, a patch of highly complicated software used for hacking and espionage, to the Saudi kingdom despite earlier denials that the Tel Aviv regime was directly involved in the case.
The report said the sale was carried out through a subsidiary of the NSO in Luxembourg. The firm, officially known as Q Cyber Technologies, enabled Riyadh to target individuals and entities in six Middle Eastern countries.
It said the transaction was carried out after the Zionist government gave its consent to the move despite reservations by some Zionist officials who believed that the technology should not be made available to Arab governments.
The report come after certain Saudi dissident figures revealed to the media how their phones had been hacked as part of Saudi government’s extensive use of Pegasus.
Omar Abdulaziz, a Saudi activist based on Montreal, Canada, has launched a legal action against the NSO after it was revealed that it was the hacking of his phone conversations and chats with slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi that led to his assassination in Turkey in early October.
“The hacking of my phone played a major role in what happened to Jamal, I am really sorry to say,” said Abdulaziz in an interview with the CNN.
