When most people think of international  spies, they probably imagine hyper-masculine figures such as James Bond or Jason  Bourne.

But Israel’s fearsome secret service has  developed a new breed of super-spy – seductive young women.

And the highly trained agents say that ‘any  means is valid’ when it comes to deploying their feminine wiles – though they  would draw the line at sleeping with the enemy.

The world has never previously heard from the  female spies of the Mossad, who have been crucial to some of the agency’s  greatest triumphs.

But now five of them have spoken out for the  first time, telling Israeli magazine Lady Globes about their extraordinary  lifestyle which makes them feel as if they are ‘living in a movie’.

The most notable deployment of the women’s  unique talents came in 1986, when one agent seduced a turncoat former nuclear  engineer and lured him into a trap so he could be taken back to  Israel.

A current agent calling herself Yael tells  the magazine that women often had an advantage over men, as they were more  likely to be trusted by strangers.

‘A man who wants to gain access to a  forbidden area has less chance of being allowed in,’ she says. ‘A smiling woman  has a bigger chance of success.’

Another spy, Efrat, echoes the sentiment,  saying: ‘We use our femininity because any means is valid.’

But she adds that there are things she and  her comrades would not do: ‘Even if we think that the way to advance the mission  is to sleep with Ahmadinejad’s chief of staff, no one in the Mossad would allow  us to do it.

‘Women agents are not used for sexual  purposes. We flirt, but the line is drawn at sex.’

However, not all their work is glamorous, as  38-year-old Ella explains to Lady Globes.

‘I leave a secure home, my husband and three  small children sleeping safely in their beds with tears welling in my eyes and a  growing lump in my throat,’ she says.

Mossad chief Tamir Pardo told the magazine  that around half of the agency’s spies are women, and said that the fairer sex  has some distinct advantages over male agents.

‘Women have a distinct advantage in secret  warfare because of their ability to multitask,’ he said.

‘Contrary to stereotypes, you see that  women’s abilities are superior to men in terms of understanding the territory,  reading situations, spatial awareness. When they’re good, they’re very  good.
