Mossad confirms taking part in operation to thwart Hezbollah attack in Brazil

A statement from the Mossad spy agency says it took part in an operation in Brazil with local security forces to thwart a planned terror attack by Hezbollah operatives against Jewish and Israeli targets.

The Mossad thanks the Brazilian authorities for arresting a Hezbollah cell that was planning an attack and was funded by Iran, the statement says.

Hezbollah is working around the world with backing from Iran to carry out attacks against Israeli, Jewish and Western targets, the Mossad adds, noting that it is working to thwart all such attempts “wherever needed.”
