The Mossad allegedly provided intelligence to Argentina which helped successfully thwart a Hezbollah plot to attack Jewish community centers in Buenos Aires, according to Channel 2.
Two citizens from Argentina were arrested on Thursday because they had suspected links to Lebanon’s Hezbollah, according to Al Jazeera.
Police said they found an image of a Hezbollah flag, credentials in Arabic and proof that the two had traveled abroad.
On Tuesday, the US State Department designated as a terrorist Jawad Nasrallah, the son of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. The department also accused him of carrying out attacks against Israel in the West Bank.
In 1992, Iran bombed the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, killing 29 people and injuring 242. Two years later, Hezbollah bombed the AMIA Jewish community center in the city, an attack that killed 85 people and injured hundreds.
