Two Hizbullah operatives arrested recently in Azerbaijan for allegedly plotting to attack the Israeli embassy were caught with Iranian passports and were working on behalf of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as well as al Qaida, Azeri news reports have revealed. According to new details revealed this week, the two operatives - identified as Karaki Ali Mohammad and Najmaddin Ali Huseyn - were caught with Iranian passports that they used to enter Azerbaijan. The cell's target was not just the Israeli embassy but also included a Jewish community center in Baku as well as the Gabala Radar Station which Russia leases from Azerbaijan and is located in the northern part of the country.
