Red Sea Spies
BBC journalist Raffi Berg tells the true story of Mossad’s fake holiday resort on the Red Sea, a diving centre on the Sudanese coast run by secret service operatives. It attracted tourists from all over the world. In reality the agents used it as a cover to smuggle thousands of Ethiopian Jews to Israel from behind enemy lines. Red Sea Spies is the gripping tale of a top-secret and often parlous operation.
