Meet Gad Shimron: former Mossad agent
Updated: Aug 1, 2020
Shimron was a member of various operative units of the Mossad.
During the 90s, Shimron served as the European correspondent for the Israeli daily newspaper Ma'ariv.
In addition, Shimron has published seven fiction and non-fiction books on intelligence, security and the history of the Crusaders, in Hebrew, English, French and German.
Shimron was instrumental in the rescue of the Ethiopian Jews out of Sudan and Ethiopia by bringing them to Israel.
The script for The Red Sea Diving Resort, a 2019 spy thriller film, was loosely based ("inspired") on an actual undercover mission (part of Operation Brothers) that moved Ethiopian Jews to Israel.
