"Newly leaked documents revealed that U.K.'s intelligence agency surveilled Israeli military and diplomatic entities from 2008 to 2009, once labeling Tel Aviv as a genuine threat to stability in the Middle East, French daily Le Monde reported Thursday. The extent of the U.K.'s spying on Israel came to light after former National Security Agency employee turned whistleblower Edward Snowden shared top secret documents with The Intercept, an online media outlet dedicated to publishing Snowden's leaks. The files reportedly detailed efforts by the U.K.'s intelligence bureau General Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) to snoop on its ally Israel during the Iranian elections." (12/08/16)
