The magazine Der Spiegel has reported that Israel spied on US secretary of state John Kerry, during peace talks with Palestinians and Arab states last year,. The German weekly said on Sunday that Israeli intelligence, and at least one other secret service, intercepted Kerry’s phone calls during a doomed, nine-month effort to broker a peace deal. If confirmed, the report will further sour the diplomat’s relationship with Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, and raise fresh questions about the vulnerability of phone communications to eavesdropping.
