Israel busts Palestinian terror nets run by Hizballah via Facebook

Nine Palestinians have been rounded up in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip suspected of membership in a number of terror cells run from Lebanon by the pro-Iranian Hizballah. They were picked up after a joint investigation by the IDF, Shin Bet and Police. The Palestinians were recruited and received instructions and training from afar by means of encrypted Facebook messages posted by Hizballah. The detainees are accused of plotting shooting and suicide attacks against Israeli civilian targets and soldiers and fundraising for their operations. Under questioning, they revealed efforts to recruit Arab Israelis by means of social media too.
