In 1992, Hezbollah was successful in bombing a Jewish community center, killing 85 and injuring more than 300. So, it is no surprise that Iran and its proxies are at it again.
There is no effort anywhere to stop the flow of migrants all unknown.
RECORD HALF MILLION PEOPLE CROSSED THE TREACHEROUS DARIÉN GAP IN 2023
The jungle between Colombia and Panama marks the start of the dangerous trek north from South America to the United States.
A record 520,000 people crossed the treacherous jungle between Colombia and Panama known as the Darién Gap in 2023, more than double the number reported the year before, according to new figures from the government of Panama.
The people who made the journey that marks the start of the dangerous trek north from South America to the United States last year were mostly from Venezuela, Ecuador, Haiti, and China, according to the numbers from Panama’s migration agency.
Around a quarter of the people who crossed were minors, said Samira Gozaine, who heads the agency. More here
Security Minister Patricia Bullrich told the media that authorities had been on high alert as Buenos Aires hosts the Pan-American Maccabiah Games, bringing together some 4,000 athletes.
She said the country had received intelligence from the United States and Israel on the potential threat, and that the three suspects had booked a hotel near the Israeli embassy.
“We have neutralized the arrival of a possible terrorist cell in the country,” the security ministry wrote on social media.
The three were arrested on December 30, and one of them was found with Venezuelan and Colombian passports in his name.
Bullrich said the three had been awaiting the arrival of what her ministry earlier described as “an international shipment of a 35-kilo parcel originating in the Republic of Yemen.”

THIS PLANNED ATTACK CAME MULTIPLE MONTHS AFTER AN IRAQI NATIONAL WAS ARRESTED FOR LURKING OUTSIDE OF THE ISRAELI EMBASSY IN BUENOS AIRES, SHORTLY AFTER A SERIES OF BOMB THREATS.
Three men from Syria and Lebanon were arrested in Buenos Aires and Avellaneda this week, the Argentine Federal Police (PFA) said.
The suspects were waiting for a 35-kilogram package to arrive from Yemen for their planned attack, the police said, adding that the package was addressed to the home of one of the suspects.
The police said they were paying extra attention to the security of the event following email threats and reports of suspicious people lurking around the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires.
In October, an Iraqi national who was being investigated for falsifying Argentinian documents was arrested outside of the Israeli embassy while having phone conversations the same week the embassy received a series of bomb threats.
One of the three suspects arrived in Argentina from Syria. He was traveling with additional passports from Venezuela and Colombia, Argentinian media outlets reported. The other two suspects arrived from Lebanon. All three suspects arrived on separate international flights to Buenos Aires, the reports said. Link
