The Iran-proxy Lebanese-based terrorist organization Hezbollah planned to assassinate former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert six years ago, according to an Arabic report today, Arutz Sheva reports.
The report, revealed by the London-based Al-Arabi Al-Jadeed, indicate Hezbollah planned the assassination as a response to the assassination of Hezbollah field commander Imad Mughniyeh in a 2008 car bombing in Beirut.
Mughniyeh’s son Jihad was killed in an airstrike on the Syrian Golan Heights last month, as he and other Hezbollah terrorists, along with an Iranian general, planned attacks on Israel.
According to the report, an Israeli agent named Mohammed Shurba, who infiltrated the Hezbollah lines and was recently arrested, foiled the attempt on Olmert’s life. Read more at Arutz Sheva.
