Gantz: Iran and Hezbollah tried to harm UNIFIL's activities

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz accused the Iranian security services of plotting with the Lebanese "Hezbollah" to "damage the work of the UN peacekeeping forces in southern Lebanon (UNIFIL)."


"I can reveal today that the activities of the Iranian security services, in cooperation with Hezbollah, were recently identified, in order to harm the activities of UNIFIL forces in Lebanon," Gantz said, at the Internet Week conference held at Tel Aviv University.


He added that this was "by carrying out an electronic operation aimed at stealing materials about the deployment of UNIFIL in the region, and their use by Hezbollah. This is another attempt by Iran and Hezbollah to harm the citizens of Lebanon and the stability of the country."
