Egypt (also) is nabbing Israeli 'telecom spies'... recruiting for Lebanon & Syria

"..Egypt on Monday charged an Egyptian businessman and two Israelis with spying for Israel and trying to recruit operatives working for telecoms companies in Egypt, Syria and Lebanon.
Officials arrested Tarek Abdel Rezek Hussein, the 37-year-old owner of an import-export firm, in August, according to a document shown to reporters by Egyptian state security attorney Hicham Badawi.
The document alleged that Hussein had accepted $37,000 for providing the Israelis with information about Egyptians working in telecommunications companies who could be recruited to spy in Egypt, Syria and Lebanon. ....It was not clear if the charges were linked to a wave of arrests in Lebanon in the past two years, some of them involving telecom sector employees, over accusations of spying for Israel...."
