Two Middle East immigrants in the United States have been arrested in connection with terrorist activities after the FBI found out their chilling ties to the terrorist organization known as Hezbollah. This is a wake-up call to every American.
According to a news release from United States Attorney’s Office, District of New York, “Ali Kourani and Samer El Debek, a/k/a ‘Samer Eldebek,’ were arrested on Thursday, June 1, 2017, on charges related to their alleged activities on behalf of Hizballah[sic], a designated foreign terrorist organization. “
Kourani was reportedly living in the Bronx in New York, while Eldebek was living in Michigan. According to the detailed news release outlining the case, the men were allegedly searching out areas for possible terror attacks on U.S. soil and in Panama. According to NBC News, Kourani had sought out La Guardia International Airport as a possible target, as well as the New York FBI Headquarters.
Kourani, a native of Lebanon, is a naturalized American citizen who has been in the United States since 2003. According to the news release, he lied during his entry examination and omitted the fact that he had trained under Hezbollah in Lebanon when he was as a teenager. According to the release, Kourani has been arrested on charges that included:
“Providing, attempting, and conspiring to provide material support to Hizballah [sic]; receiving and conspiring to receive military-type training from Hizballah; a related weapons offense that is alleged to have involved, among other weapons, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and machine guns; violating and conspiring to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (“IEEPA”); and naturalization fraud to facilitate an act of international terrorism.”
