Israelis disguised as international aid workers attempt assassination in Syria

Deep Background by Philip Giraldi

From The American Conservative September 29, 2006 issue:

Last month, Israel's Mossad sent an assassination team to the Syrian capital of Damascus to carry out the killing of Khalid Meshal, the head of Hamas in exile, but Syrian intelligence apparently spirited Meshal away to a safe haven before the attack could be mounted. Ironically, the Israelis were disguised as international aid workers assisting Lebanese refugees. In 1997, Meshal survived a botched assassination attempt while he was living in Jordan. Mossad agents using Canadian passports injected poison into his ear in the street, but two Israelis were caught. King Hussein of Jordan demanded and received the antidote to the poison in exchange for the return of the two men.
