Author Raffi Berg who will reveal the true story of an undercover operation run by Israel’s Mossad. In the early 1980s on a remote part of the Sudanese coast, a new luxury holiday resort opened for business. Catering for divers, it attracted guests from around the world. Little did the holidaymakers know that the staff were undercover spies, working for the Israeli secret service.
Providing a front for covert night-time activities, the holiday village allowed these agents to carry out a secret evacuation of thousands of Ethiopian Jews who had been languishing in refugee camps, and the spiriting of them to Israel. Berg’s book is the complete, never-before-heard, gripping tale of a top-secret and often hazardous operation.
