BEIRUT: A security source said Ali Jarrah, charged with espionage for Israel, has confirmed to investigators that he was assigned earlier this year to scout the Kfar Soussa district in the Syrian capital of Damascus where senior Hizbullah commander Imad Mughniyeh was assassinated in February, As-Safir newspaper reported on Monday. As-Safir also quoted an unidentified security source as saying Jarrah testified to have scouted "certain points" in the coastal town of Tartous in northern Syria, where Syrian General Mohammad Suleiman was assassinated. Jarrah, who was allegedly recruited by Israeli intelligence in 1982, said he was not aware of the targets that Israeli intelligence wanted to strike.
