It’s Worldwide: Israeli Intelligence Helped Nigeria Bust an Armed Hezbollah Cell

Nigeria’s secret service said Thursday it had discovered a Hezbollah “cell” in a house in Kano (northern Nigeria), where Lebanese  citizens had concealed weapons to be used for attacks against “Israeli and Western targets” in Nigeria.

Nigerian authorities said they had arrested three Lebanese in that area, on suspicion of being members of Hezbollah, and that a raid on one of their residences had revealed a large stash of weapons.

We have learned that the exposure of the cell was possible due to close cooperation between Nigeria’s security service and the Israeli intelligence agencies, Mossad and Aman (military intelligence).

The Israelis are monitoring Iranian and Hezbollah activities all over the globe — part of the significant shift by Israeli intelligence, just over ten years ago, toward focusing on threats from Iran.  That (as described in our book Spies Against Armageddon) includes, of course, Iran’s nuclear program.

The  Nigerian incident is the tenth case in which Israeli intelligence — working with local security services — foiled attempts by Hezbollah and Iran to strike against Jewish and Israeli targets. Previous cases occurred in India, Cyprus, Thailand, Georgia, and Azerbaijan.
