A Swedish citizen of Lebanese descent was arrested by Shin Bet joint forces for having ties to Hezbollah. Hassan Khalil Hizran, 55, was apprehended at Ben-Gurion Airport shortly after his arrival to Israel after being flagged by security forces.

During his interrogation, he admitted that he had met with Hezbollah operatives on a trip to Lebanon, and that Hezbollah had made plans to recruit Palestinians living abroad so they would have access to Israel.
