The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and Police are investigating whether Hezbollah was involved in a recently attempt to smuggling weapons from Lebanon into northern Israel.

The smuggling attempt was thwarted on July 9. The Israeli Police, with help from the IDF, seized 43 handguns and ammunition estimated to worth some $820,000. The attempt took place near the village of Ghajar.

“The IDF is examining the possibility that the smuggling attempt was carried out with the help of the Hezbollah terror organization, and is investigating, along with the Israeli Police, the perpetrators of the weapon smuggling attempt,” a statement by the IDF reads.

Israeli officials believe the handguns and ammunition were meant for Arab-Israeli activists with backing from Hezbollah, according to the Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation and Channel 13.

Furthermore, Israeli officials told Channel 12 that Hezbollah wants to arm others for an attack within Israel, rather than launching a direct attack on the separation line. The group wants to avoid any confrontation that may affect crisis-struck Lebanon.

Hezbollah has not commented on Israel’s accusations, yet. These accusations may be an attempt by Tel Aviv to ignite a political crisis for Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Smuggling from Lebanon to northern Israel is not uncommon. Nevertheless, weapons are rarely trafficked across the separation line.
