Feds: Hezbollah Recruited American to Be Sleeper Agent

A Bronx man was allegedly part of the Lebanese terror group’s plan to have operatives ready in case of an emergency.

When U.S. authorities allegedly discovered a Bronx man with terror training checking out potential targets in New York, they might have assumed he was inspired by ISIS.

Instead, it seems the city was facing a very unusual terror threat.

Ali Kourani was an alleged sleeper agent recruited by Hezbollah’s external terror arm, the Islamic Jihad Organization, or IJO.
