Israeli officials have denied reports from Al Arabiya that Hezbollah’s CFO Hassein Fahs fled to Israel with large sums of embezzled funds, classified documents and maps, Israel Radio reported Saturday.

According to the report, the 29-year old somehow managed to cross into Israel with $5 million in stolen Hezbollah funds as well as various documents after being arrested along with four other members of the terror group on suspicion of theft and collaborating with Israel.

Israel Radio quoted Israeli officials as saying that the report, which was originally published in Lebanese media, was false. The Israeli denial was followed by similar a denial by Hezbollah, according to Israel Radio.
