The news outlet, which revealed the scandal in mid-January, presented names of several public figures who were allegedly targeted by illegal phone intercepts.

Among them were Channel 13 executive Aviram Elad, former Communications Ministry director-general Avi Berger, and businessman Rami Levy, who owns a supermarket chain that bears his name.

Also on the list are Netanya Mayor Miriam Feirberg, Kiryat Ata Mayor Yaakov Peret, and Holon Mayor Moti Sasson, as well as several social activists, among them critics of police brutality against the Ethiopian minority.

Last week, Public Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev admitted that the police illegally used the spying program in several cases, after repeatedly denying it.

According to the source, the officers in 2020 hacked into the phones of several people, in several cases to look for evidence of corruption.
