Israeli mercenary Yair Klein trained paramilitary ‘with the approval of the Colombian authorities’ | Colombia Reports

Israeli mercenary Yair Klein claimed his arrival in Colombia in the 1980’s to train paramilitary groups was undertaken with the approval of Colombian and Israeli authorities.

The former Israeli lieutenant was interviewed for an upcoming book, “The Klein Case: The Origin of Paramilitarism” by Colombian journalist Olga Behar, and claimed he had no idea what he was doing was illegal.

He arrived in Colombia under the impression that he would be training “peasants who wanted to confront guerrillas,” he said in the interview.
