Prisoner X

Prisoner X

In December 2010, a man was found dead in one of Israel’s maximum-security prisons.
The guards did not know his name, nor what crime he had committed. He was only known as “Prisoner X.”
When the story broke two years later, the suicide of this anonymous Mossad agent revealed the agency’s faults, failures and systematic silencing.
