A Hizbullah terror cell in operating in Egypt planned to carry out three simultaneous terror attacks on Israeli tourists in the Sinai Peninsula, the Egyptian paper Al Ahram reported Tuesday. According to the report, which was based on the interrogation of terror suspect Sami Shihab, Hizbullah was not planning to transfer weapons to Hamas in the Gaza Strip via Sinai, but rather to use them to carry out attacks within Egypt. The newspaper reported earlier in the week that terror cell members had acquired a house in Cairo and numerous villas in Sinai as part of the plot to perpetrate terror attacks in the area.
