A number of current and former US intelligence officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Israel is the top threat for CIA’s Near East Division which undertakes Washington’s espionage activities across the Middle East, the Associated Press reported on Saturday.

The report comes on the heels of a new revelation by the White House that the houses of several CIA agents in Israel have been recently broken into.

In the most recent instance of such intrusions, the CIA station chief in Tel Aviv discovered that sensitive equipment he employed to communicate with the CIA headquarters in Virginia was tampered with.

“It is likely that Israeli intelligence is linked to the cases,” the report said.
