President Trump has inadvertently exposed the life of an Israeli spy embedded in ISIS by sharing classified information with Russia, US media is reporting.
The intel related to a foiled ISIS plot to deploy laptop bombs in commercial airliners.
Israel has been staying measured in its response to this charge, while media sources as ABC corroborated that it was one of the Jewish State’s spies who was the source, citing 'current and former' US officials who said the compromised embedded individual was now at risk.
These US media and government sources claimed that Israel had only shared the spy’s intel to the US on strict condition that their identity remains protected.
The US already prohibits 10 mainly Middle Eastern airports from allowing laptops on board US-bound flights.
Former Mossad director Danny Yatom directing his point of view to the The Jerusalem Post conjectured that this could be a 'grave violation' of security-sharing protocol if it's true and could ‘lead to harm to the source.'
