According to a Dir Spiegel report, shortly after an Israeli national [reported by the foreign media as being an alleged Mossad Intelligence Agency agent] was arrested in Poland, Israeli diplomatic officials began efforts to prevent his extradition to Germany.
According to the report, Uri Brodsky was placed under arrest on suspicion of aiding the Mossad in the Dubai assassination of senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, in addition to using illegal means to obtain a forged German passport which was eventually handed over to one of the team members who traveled to Dubai for the hit.
The suspect, Brodsky, arrived in Warsaw Airport last weekend, traveling under a Polish passport, and officials arrested him on an outstanding German warrant on June 4th, announcing his arrest was in connection to the Dubai operation. While to date, Israel has never accepted responsibility for the Dubai operation, in which a master terrorist was eliminated in his hotel room, the international community has accepted the reports of Dubai investigators, blaming Israel.
Israel Foreign Ministry officials confirm the arrest, releasing a benign statement that it is being handled according to protocol for such matters. Unofficial reports state Israel is seeking to have Brodsky extradited home to stand trial in Israel.
