Forces from Germany's police and domestic intelligence agency recently raided seven locations around Germany where three terror cells belonging to Hezbollah were operating. The terror cells belonging to Hezbollah that operated in Hamburg, Hesse, North Rheine and other areas dealt with raising donations for development of the military capabilities of Hezbollah and for families of Hezbollah fighters who were killed. The German internal security agency accused the terror activists of engaging in illegal terrorist activity disguised as humanitarian and religious activities.    

A spokesman for the German internal security minister said that Germany will not support terrorists, and that terrorists will not be able to operate freely in the country. In 2020, Germany designated Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and banned it from operating in Germany.  

The intelligence services of Germany estimate that Hezbollah operates more than 1,000 terror activists on German soil who deal mainly with raising funds and acquisition of dual-use items that the Lebanese terrorist organization is trying to acquire to build up its strength.  

It should be assumed that the intelligence services of Germany are acting in concert with the intelligence organizations of Israel and the U.S. to eliminate the operations of Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations in Germany, including by thwarting terror funding.
