Cyprus arrest of Hezbollah man ‘uncovered large-scale Iranian terror plot across Europe’

Israeli security sources are closely monitoring the arrest and investigation of a Lebanese citizen in Larnaca, Cyprus, who is suspected of being a Hezbollah operative caught in possession of a massive quantity of explosive material.

Cypriot police suspect a man arrested on Wednesday was planning an attack on Israeli interests on the island after they found almost two tons of ammonium nitrate in his basement, newspapers on the island reported on Friday.

The 26-year-old man is Lebanese-born and has a Canadian passport. He was detained by police after authorities discovered the stockpile.

    The test is to see if the government will revoke his Canadian citizenship, because he meets all the requirements.

      Maybe he will be locked up overseas. Win-win.

        Only to trade him for a hostage down the road.

    Toronto Star is probably already composing the anti Harper editorial that will demand the Mo be compensated.
