U.S. intelligence officials are increasingly concerned about the potential for Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed terrorist group based in Lebanon, to launch attacks within the U.S. homeland.

The group’s substantial funding from Iran and its existing operatives in the U.S. raise fears of potential attacks.

FBI director Chris Wray said in a congressional hearing in November, “The arrests of individuals in the United States allegedly linked to Hezbollah’s main overseas terrorist arm, and their intelligence-collection and procurement efforts, demonstrate Hezbollah’s interest in long-term contingency planning activities here in the homeland.”

The group’s history of attacks and recent actions in the Middle East have heightened concerns about its capabilities and intentions.

“Hezbollah could draw on the capability they have … to put people [in] places to do something,” according to Politico.

“It is something to be worried about,” continued the outlet.
