An IDF spokesman explained that it was not yet possible to associate the terrorist cell with any organization, but in his opinion these were activists working on Iran’s mission. “We do not know how to point to an organizational affiliation, but I give a general assessment that some are of Iranian interest.” We know how to connect the event to Hezbollah’s action, and in the coming days we will be able to say the organizational affiliation. ”
Tensions on the northern border began about two weeks ago, with an attack in Damascus attributed to Israel, during which a Hezbollah operative was killed. Following the incident and fear of an attack by the terrorist organization, the IDF raised the level of alert, and ordered a change in the deployment of forces.
Hezbollah has denied any connection to the incident.
