Following the methodically planned San Bernadino massacre in December of 2015 we warned that more attacks were coming and that terrorists have more than likely already already infiltrated the United States in an effort to identify potential targets and execute future strikes on American citizens.
This month, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U. S. Attorney’s Office and other federal and local agencies have confirmed our suspicions.
According to a press release from the U. S. Department of Justice, in early June the FBI arrested two individuals connected to the Lebanese-based Hezbollah terrorist organization. While the group considers itself a political party, the United States, the Arab league and scores of others have designated it a dangerous terrorist organization. The paramilitary wing of Hezbollah is referred to as the Jihad Council and is believed to be behind numerous terrorist actions across the globe.
Acting Manhattan U. S. Attorney Joon H. Kim said: ‘Today, we announce serious terrorism charges against two men who allegedly trained with and supported the Islamic Jihad Organization, a component of the foreign terrorist organization Hizballah. Recruited as Hizballah operatives, Samer El Debek and Ali Kourani allegedly received military-style training, including in the use of weapons like rocket-propelled grenade launchers and machine guns for use in support of the group’s terrorist mission. At the direction of his Hizballah handlers, El Debek allegedly conducted missions in Panama to locate the U. S. and Israeli Embassies and to assess the vulnerabilities of the Panama Canal and ships in the Canal. Kourani allegedlyconducted surveillance of potential targets in America, including military and law enforcement facilities in New York City.
