The 'Hezbollah landed in Cuba "Prepare new shares»
Are three. One of them uses a strange nickname: Agave Tequilana. Belong to the 'apparatus for operations "outside" of' Hezbollah, Lebanon's pro-Iranian movement. The trio has recently moved from Mexico to Cuba with the task of establishing a bridgehead on the 'island. In a few days followed by 23 other guerrillas Hamia selected by Talal, the 'highest exponent of' Hezbollah conducts clandestine activities. The posting of three is here to stay. Hamia, with the 'approval of the Secretary Nasrallah, has decided to open a "base" in Cuba and has made available to the plan - known as the Caribbean dossier - a robust budget. Over a half million dollars. The landing at 'Havana is not surprising. For years, the 'Hezbollah, often on behalf of' Iran is acting in the countries of 'Latin America. The strengths are in Ciudad del Este (Paraguay) and in Brazil, but the extremists have been installed in many border towns and Venezuela. Raise funds, and trafficking of cells stand ready in case you need to act against opponents. Twice Hezbollah, assisted by 'Iran hit in Argentina' s Israeli embassy and the headquarters of the 'Jewish association. The 'Cuban outpost will, initially, a logistics role. Hezbollah will have to create points of 'support, acquire and produce documents of Latin American countries, recruiting informants and come in contact with the traffickers that move people and things. Once you create the network, the guerrillas will be held ready for new missions.From Cuba, can be reached along the routes of 'illegal immigration, Mexico and the U.S. from here.Or other countries. Hezbollah still have to avenge the 'killing of Imad Mugniyeh, the head of' clandestine apparatus removed to Damascus, and may try to do it in South America, attacking an Israeli target.

Opaque areas that seem tailor-made for those who want to attack and disappear.
Together they moved silently toward the camp, Kate forcing her adrenaline levels down; maybe this was her Pulitzer. It wasn't the risk of getting killed that bothered her. It was her not getting her story on air.
As they drew closer the sounds of the camp got louder. They came up to a collection of underbrush, with enough light to reveal the encampment. They crept to the edge and looked through the foliage, being careful not to disrupt any.
Before them was a small camp, about a dozen structures, mostly four-man tents, some away from the sleeping area; likely an armoury near the edge of the jungle. In the clearing, there were about two dozen possible combatants, all dressed in rough clothing, a few casually carrying weapons. The men were all swarthy and dark haired, which only meant they weren’t Swedes.
Boyd carefully started shooting long range footage. Kate took out the digi-cam and silently moved around the perimeter. As she left Boyd three of the men in the camp began firing into the jungle on the opposite side, obviously checking their weapons. Kate saw a hooch nearby and crawled past the edge of the jungle and into it. It was filled with crates and she shot about thirty seconds of footage and carefully withdrew back into the foliage.
