'This isn't over': Former Mossad agent recalls raid of Jewish cult in Mexico

A few days following the raid on the ultra-Orthodox cult Lev Tahor in Mexico, a former Mossad agent, who took part in the operation shared the details of rescuing innocent children trapped in the extremist religious group.

Danny Limor was among several volunteers who took part in the operation led by the Mexican police. During the raid, 26 members of the cult - including its leader - were captured, leading to the rescue of members who were trapped in the cult.

“We’ve been following the cult ever since we identified its location in Guatemala,” Limor said in a Ynet interview. "We’ve managed to built a case against the cult in recent months, while cooperating with Mexican authorities. This led to the eventual raid to arrest some of the cult’s senior members.
