Defense officials said Sunday morning that the Hizbullah terror cell recently detained in Egypt was likely planning an attack against Israeli targets, although they described the episode as an internal issue between Cairo and the guerrilla group tied to the destabilization of the Egyptian regime. The officials added that "the arrest of Hizbullah operatives constitutes an escalation in tensions between Iran, Hizbullah and Egypt." The Defense Minister's Office said that despite the developments, Hizbullah had no interest in an escalation in the North, but emphasized that Israel was following events closely.
