According to a tweet by PM Netanyahu’s office, Israeli Intelligence Mossad, along with Brazil’s Federal Police, foiled Hezbollah’s plan to attack Brazil.
Israel’s secret agency, the Mossad, worked with Brazil’s Federal Police to stop Hezbollah-planned terrorist strikes. Two people who were connected to the terrorist organization were taken into custody as a result of an intelligence operation launched by Brazilian law enforcement.
Brazilian police carried out 11 search and seizure orders as well as two temporary detention warrants under the code name “Operation Trapiche.” The Federal District, São Paulo, and Minas Gerais were the locations of the operations.
The terrorists planned to assault structures in the Brazilian Jewish community. They were associated with the terrorist organization Hezbollah. The suspects could be charged under anti-terrorism statutes, which include prison terms of up to 15 years and 6 months, investigators say.
Yoo Sang-bum, a politician from South Korea, stated that the National Intelligence Service of South Korea has informed them that North Korea has supplied Russia with one million artillery shells.
