Security forces arrested a Swedish-Lebanese suspect at Ben-Gurion Airport on July 21, on suspicion of landing in Israel to gather intelligence on sensitive targets on behalf of Hezbollah, the Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency announced on Sunday.

The suspect, Hassan Khalil Hizran, 55, was taken into custody after the Shin Bet received prior intelligence about him, suggesting that he has ties to Hezbollah.

"During questioning by the Shin Bet, Hizran confessed," the agency said, adding that the suspect provided an account of how he was recruited by the Hezbollah and subsequent cooperation with the Lebanese Shi’ite terrorist organization.
