Israeli Security Services, Shin Bet, has arrested a Palestinian resident in Nablus, north of the West Bank, and claimed that he was paid a sum of US$ 3000 by the Lebanon based Hezbollah party.
The Shin Bet added that the resident intended to carry out attacks against Israelis.
The resident, identified as Majdi Ammar, is believed to be a member of the Al Aqsa Brigades, the military wing of Fateh movement.
Israeli online daily, Haaretz, reported that a security source said on condition of anonymity that “while Hezbollah paid Amar to carry attacks, the Palestinian Authority paid him up to US$700 not to carry out these attacks”.
Haaretz added that Ammar was arrested in November but the Israeli security issued a gag order preventing the details from being made public.
According to an Israeli security source, several Palestinians activists have been arrested recently after Hezbollah provided them with money and arms, and trained some of them.
