Hezbollah declares ‘victory’ in exposing CIA operatives in Lebanon


Iranian-backed Hezbollah boasted Wednesday that it has succeeded in exposing CIA operatives in Lebanon and urged the government to take immediate measures against the US embassy near Beirut.

“Our security… has exposed several American and Israeli plots on Lebanon,” Hezbollah MP Hassan Fadlallah told reporters outside parliament.

“We call on the Lebanese government to take immediate action… and raise the issue with the United Nations and embassies, so that the whole world is aware of what the US embassy in Lebanon is doing,” he added.

Fadlallah, who heads parliament’s telecommunications committee, said the Lebanese Shiite militant group, which is also backed by Syria, had succeeded in uncovering Central Intelligence Agency operatives that had infiltrated Hezbollah.

“Lebanese intelligence vanquished US and Israeli intelligence in what is now known as the intelligence war,” Fadlallah said.

“The resistance blinded American intelligence eyes.”
