In Lillehammer, Norway, after an informant mistakenly said Bouchiki was Ali Hassan Salameh, a Black September operative. Five Mossad agents, including two women, were captured by the Norwegian authorities, while others managed to slip away. In an interview about the Spielberg film on Munich,former Mossad agent Gad Shimron says that teams in the field always include some women in order to avoid arousing suspicion. "It`s standard practice to include female agents in such operations," he told Reuters. "Anyone who has been on a stakeout knows that having a lady on hand helps you avoid being spotted." Shimron also said that unlike in the film, the revenge squads probably did not contain document forgers, as such personnel would not have the time necessary to produce high quality documents due to the short duration of their missions. The team of assassins was most likely much larger than the five-man group in the movie as well. Mossad veterans told Reuters that because of their high priority, every reprisal operation involves a massive number of field agents. So contrary to your pronouncements it is quite the norm to use a large number of operatives in such assassinations.
