Mexico-Hezbollah: For the record. A Kuwaiti newspaper, Al-Seyassah, reported on Tuesday that Mexico foiled an attempt by Hezbollah♠ to establish a network in Mexico.Nothing to see here, just move along.
According to the report, Hezbollah operatives employed Mexican nationals with family ties to Lebanon to set up the network whose purpose was to target Israel and the West. Mexican police mounted a surveillance operation on the group's leader, Jameel Nasr, who traveled frequently to Lebanon to receive information and instructions from Hezbollah commanders there. Nasr was living in Tijuana, Mexico♥ at the time of his arrest, the report said.
