Hizbullah Targeting Israelis in Africa
(IsraelNN.com) The Hizbullah terrorist party is planning to attack Israelis in West Africa on the Ivory Coast, where Shi'ite immigrants from Lebanon comprise a large percentage of the local population. Israelis, working in construction and in the diamond industry, have been warned to maintain a high alert.
Hizbullah previously has said it would target Israelis around the world following the February assassination of its mastermind Imad Mughibyeh in a car bombing in Damascus. Syria and Hizbullah have pointed fingers at Israel, which has denied involvement in the incident.
