Nine Israelis Face Deportation

NINE Israeli nationals — who[m] CSIS suspects are possible foreign agents — were arrested by Immigration and Ottawa police tactical officers last Friday, blocks from Parliament Hill.

The nine have all been charged by Immigration for working in Canada illegally. All are in their 20s and were apparently selling art in Ottawa. The arrests follow similar takedowns of Israelis in Toronto and Calgary over the past few weeks.

An Ottawa police source said police were told members of the group were possible agents from Mossad, Israel’s spy agency, but given no further information by CSIS. [more]
