Navideshahed: An Israeli spy has confessed on Syrian state TV to involvement in the assassination of senior Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh in 2008.

On Saturday, Syrian state television aired footage of a Jordanian-Palestinian national who admitted that he provided information on locations in Syria to Israeli intelligence agents.

He also said he helped Israel assassinate Imad Mughniyeh, a top commander of the Lebanese Islamic resistance movement Hezbollah who was killed in a bombing in Damascus in 2008.

Syria had earlier accused Israel of being behind the murder, but Tel Aviv has always denied the charges.

Syria has been grappling with a bout of unrest for the past few months.

Syrian activists have said that the security forces are responsible for the deaths that have occurred since the outbreak of street protests in the country.

But the government of President Bashar al-Assad says armed groups aided by foreign elements are fueling the unrest, which has led to the death of over 1,600 people.

Damascus also says at least 700 security personnel have lost their lives battling against foreign-backed armed gangs.

In addition, Syrian state TV has broadcast reports showing seized weapons caches and confessions by terrorist elements describing how they obtained arms from foreign sources.
