Jihad In America Update: “Israeli targets in U.S. on heightened alert: Fear of attacks by Hezbollah sleeper agents as military campaign in Lebanon continues,” from WND, with thanks to Bryce:
JERUSALEM — Israel has raised the level of alert for its embassies and consulates worldwide, including in the U.S., for fear Hezbollah sleeper agents are seeking to attack Israeli targets oversees, WND has learned.
Israeli security officials also recommended some Jewish institutions in the U.S. and abroad heighten their alert level as Israel’s military campaign in Lebanon enters its third week following a Hezbollah raid in which two Israeli soldiers were kidnapped.
The information comes after FBI officials told reporters last week they were searching for possible Hezbollah agents operating inside the U.S. amid concerns escalating tensions with Iran could trigger attacks on American soil.
It also follows a WND exclusive interview last week in which Abu Nasser, second-in-command of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terrorist group, warned it is only a “question of time” before Palestinian terror groups and other Islamic organizations in the Middle East target the U.S. both abroad and on the home front.
