    AMMAN, (PIC)-- Different informed Palestinian sources revealed on Monday the involvement of diplomats from the Palestinian authority embassy in Paris in espionage activities for Arab, western and Israeli intelligence agencies, according to the Jordanian newspaper Al-Ghad.

    These diplomats, Al-Ghad says, are spearheaded by deputy ambassador of the PA in Paris Safwat Ibraghit and all espionage activities are carried out also in complicity with senior PA officials, most notably, head of the Palestinian national fund Ramzi Khouri, foreign minister Riyadh Al-Maliki, ambassador to France Hayel Al-Fahoum and Fatah international relations officer Nabil Shaath.

    The sources asserted that the deputy ambassador has extorted and pressured dozens of Palestinian students in France to gather intelligence information on the activities of some Islamic organizations before sending it to foreign security agencies including the Mossad.
