CIA and Mossad alliance. Metsada: International killing unit of Mossad

The Mossad(Hebrew for “institution”) is Israel’s main intelligence agency. According to the Global Security site, Mossad also oversees “covert action and counterterrorism”; its operations are widely held to include targeted killings. At the time of its founding, the Mossad’s motto was the biblical quote “By way of deception thou shalt make war.” The motto was later changed to a different Proverbs passage: “Where no counsel is, the people fall, but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” Sources refer variously to the Mossad’s international assassination unit as “Metsada,” “Caesarea,”or “Kidon”(“Kidon” is Hebrew for “bayonet”). Rafi Eitan, a former director of Mossad operations, compared its assassins to “the official hangman or the doctor on Death Row who administers the lethal injection. We are simply fulfilling a sentence sanctioned by the prime minister of the day.” In the past half-century, Israel has allegedly killed hundreds of members of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Hamas, Hebollah, and Islamic Jihad. Mossad targets have also reportedly included German rocket scientists working for Egypt in the 1960s and, from the 1980s to the present, Iraqi and Iranian nuclear scientists. Early on, the Mossad kidnapped and killed alleged Nazi war criminals; one well-known example was Adolf Eichmann, whom the Mossad abducted from Argentina and brought to Israel for trial and execution.
