Pegasus spyware: Israeli police accused of spying on Pegasus

The case of being spied on by the Pegasus spyware has resurfaced in the media. It’s not about India this time, but about Israel. According to a media report, Israeli police used Pegasus spyware to spy on people. The allegations against the police, according to Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, are “extremely serious.” These will be scrutinized.

Pegasus and other similar tools, according to Bennett, are essential in the fight against terrorism and serious crime, but they cannot be used to spy on Israeli citizens or other important figures. Amit Merari, the Deputy Attorney General, is looking into the matter. In this case, the government will soon appoint a new officer.

The Israeli government will form a commission to look into the matter.
In the meantime, the Israeli government announced the formation of a commission to look into the situation. “This commission will investigate the misuse of NSO’s Pegasus spyware to hack the phones of Israeli government officials, businessmen, and aides of ex-prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu,” said the country’s Minister of Public Security, Omer Bar Lev.

They also claim to have been watched.
