The Mossad agent was part of Hezbollah Unit 910, which carries out operations against specific Israeli targets, and allegedly prevented such attacks, the Lebanese website El Nashra reported. The attacks were intended as retaliation for the 2008 assassination of Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus, which Hezbollah blames on the Mossad.

The spy, who pretended to be a businessman while working for Hezbollah, was allegedly recruited by the Mossad during a visit to an Asian country. Despite the Israeli government’s denial of involvement, there are also suspicions that the spy may have helped the Mossad assassinate Hezbollah military commander Hassan al-Laqqis last year, according to The Jerusalem Post.
