While Hezbollah is always a threat to Israel, the Lebanese terrorist organization now seems intent on bringing its hatred and violence to American soil. Ynet News reports that the U.S. government is offering millions in reward money for the capture of two Hezbollah terrorists planning an attack in America:

An official within the US State Department stated on Tuesday that the US is believes that two operatives of the Lebanese-based terrorist group Hezbollah are planning to carry out a terrorist attack within the US.

One of the suspects is Talal Hamiyah, who a US State Department Wanted ad lists as a top Hezbollah military figure heading its external security organization (SEO), with cells around the world. The State Department is offering $ 7M for his capture.

The other Hezbollah operative is Fu'ad Shukr, whom the US believes "played a central role in the planning and executing of the October 23, 1983 US Marine Corps Barracks Bombing in Beirut, Lebanon, which killed 241 US service personnel." It is offering $ 5M for his capture.

In June, US federal authorities stated they had arrested a man in Michigan and another in New York planning on carrying out terrorism attacks on US and Israeli targets in New York and Panama.
