Mossad Director David Barnea and Libyan prime minister Abdulhamid Mohammed Al-Dabaiba recently met in Jordan to discuss normalization and security cooperation, Saudi and Libyan media outlets reported Wednesday night. The reports said that Al-Dabaiba's office denied the meeting occurred.

In November, Haaretz reported that Saddam Haftar, son of Libyan warlord Gen. Khalifa Haftar, flew to Ben Gurion Airport for meetings with Israeli officials regarding potential normalization. Besides the meeting never being officially confirmed, assuming the meeting happened, it was unclear who Haftar met with. On one hand, the Tevel department of the Mossad has reportedly had contacts with various Libyan officials over the years.

On the other hand, former national security council chief Meir Ben Shabbat and his messenger, known only as "Maoz," also reportedly had such contacts, and their handling of the file has been passed on to former Shin Bet official Nimrod Gez.
