Cell seeks to avenge assassination of Imad Mughniyeh; attack could target Israelis in immediate future, security sources warn; Talal Hamia named as Hezbollah commander charged with carrying out strike.
Hezbollah is planning a terrorist attack against Israelis abroad within days, security sources warned on Thursday night.

The warning of the imminent attack did not mention specific locations. It was issued as many Israelis were abroad for the weeklong Pessah holiday.....Security is being stepped up at potential Jewish and Israeli targets overseas, the sources said.

They named Hezbollah operative Talal Hamia as the commander of a small but well-organized overseas unit that had been tasked by the Lebanese terrorist organization with carrying out the attack.....Hamia is alleged to have been involved in the 1992 and 1994 bombings in Buenos Aires that targeted the Israeli Embassy and the main Jewish community building.

Hezbollah has been seeking to avenge the assassination of its field commander, Imad Mughniyeh, in Damascus in 2008.
