Belgium Terror Attack Could Be Linked to Hezbollah

The date of the attack coincides with the date of Israel's military withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000.

Belgian authorities are investigating whether the terrorist who murdered four people Saturday at the Brussels Jewish Museum is tied to the Lebanese Hezbollah terror organization.

Israel’s Channel 10 television news reported Tuesday that Belgian intelligence is looking at the date of the shooting – May 24 – and the official date of Israel’s military withdrawal from southern Lebanon: May 24, 2000.

The link may reflect a possible lead to a Hezbollah terror cell in Brussels, according to the report. The Iranian proxy terror organization has sleeper cells planted in countries as far away as Thailand, and throughout Europe.

In April, two terrorist suspects were picked up by Thai police. Nine others were believed to be roaming the countryside ahead of a possible Passover holiday terror operation at the time. Hezbollah has long warned it plans to “target” Israeli citizens around the world.

Two of the four victims in Saturday’s attack, Emanuel and Miri Riba, obm, were Israelis who worked for the government – leading some analysts to consider whether the shooting may have been a targeted attack, as reported Tuesday by Ha’aretz.

Other theories being considered include a Toulouse-style copycat terror attack similar to that carried out in 2012 in France by Al Qaeda-linked terrorist Mohammed Merah. Another theory focuses on the location of the attack and points out the anti-Semitic element, noting the recent rise in far-right groups and anti-Semitism in general throughout Europe.
