Red Sea Spies : Narrative
Secret agents, a lost Biblical tribe and a fake holiday resort – brought together in one of the most astonishing operations ever carried out by Israel’s intelligence service. Raffi’s debut book Red Sea Spies – written in collaboration with the commander of the mission – lifts the lid on how the Mossad smuggled thousands of Ethiopian Jews to Israel in the early 1980s, using a bogus holiday village as cover.
