Israel, UN, Worried about Growing Hizbollah Base in West Africa

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor warned the UN Security Council Tuesday that Hizbollah was increasing its power base in western Africa. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed his own concern about dangerous ties between the Lebanese terror group and African crime organizations.

Ambassador Prosor added: “Israel is particularly concerned over Hezbollah’s use of the area as a base of terror operations. Criminal initiatives bolster Hizbollah’s efforts to create sleeper-cells in the area. The world can’t stand idly by – this endangers more than just Africa but innocent lives the world over, as we have seen in New Delhi, Tbilisi and Bangkok.”
