Hezbollah has been increasing its presence and activities in South America on orders from Iran, the London-based Arabic daily Asharq Al-Awsat reported on Monday.

According to the report, Mexican and Canadian intelligence services discovered that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps had ordered the Lebanese-based terrorist organization to form intelligence-gathering cells in Latin America to monitor targets hostile to the regime in Tehran.

The report further states that these Hezbollah cells are now operating across the continent, including in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Nicaragua.
