Morocco, which employed NSO Group’s Pegasus software, has Macron’s phone on a list of possible targets, according to Le Monde. Le président français demande une enquête.

 

Gantz will meet with French Defense Minister Florence Parly on Wednesday.

 

“Gantz will discuss the Lebanon situation and the upcoming Iran deal. He will also brief the minister on NSO “said.

 

In addition to Pegasus, the Israeli Defense Ministry handles spyware exports.

 

According to a worldwide investigation coordinated by the Paris-based non-profit journalism organization Forbidden Stories, Pegasus was used to infiltrate iPhones belonging to journalists, government officials, and human rights campaigners.

 

An inter-ministerial panel has been formed to evaluate any probable abuse of the spyware.

 

They were “full of incorrect assumptions and uncorroborated notions,” NSO said. The firm says Pegasus is solely for government intelligence and law enforcement organizations fighting terrorism and criminality.

 

Israeli media said Gantz’s trip was scheduled before the NSO scandal and would focus on the worsening economic problems in Lebanon, which borders Israel.

 

Israel fears a renewal of the pact will allow Iran to develop atomic weapons. Iran denies wanting a bomb. Efforts to restore the 2015 deal after Trump abandoned it in 2018 have been sluggish.

 

The French foreign ministry warned on Monday that if Iran did not return to the negotiation table quickly, it risked jeopardizing any possibility of restoring the deal.
