The two men, 23 and 25, were arrested in Buenos Aires after police found they had a cache of weapons including a rifle, shotgun and a number of other weapons, a report stated.

Police said they found an image of a Hezbollah flag, credentials in Arabic and proof that the two had traveled abroad.


On Tuesday, the US State Department designated as a terrorist Jawad Nasrallah, the son of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. The department also accused him of carrying out attacks against Israel in the West Bank.

In 1992, Iran bombed the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, killing 29 people and injuring 242. Two years later, Hezbollah bombed the AMIA Jewish community center in the city, an attack that killed 85 people and injured hundreds.
