(Tea Party 247) – President Trump has boldly taken out one of the world’s most evil men and top terrorists with a fatal airstrike that claimed the life of Iran’s Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani. Unfortunately, it looks as though the fallout from this is still unclear and US national security officials are ramping up security to brace for a possible homeland attack via Hezbollah sleeper cells located in major American cities.
After the news of Soleimani’s assassination, security authorities in both New York City and Los Angeles have announced plans to increase security measures in anticipation of possible revenge attacks by known sleeper cells right here on American soil, according to NewsWars.
Last year, the the criminal prosecution and conviction in New York of the Hezbollah operative Ali Kourani revealed that the terror outfit has already plotted to attack U.S. interests inside the country and is ready to activate if it considers the existence of either Hezbollah or Iran to be at stake.
Following the arrest of Kourani and another Hezbollah operative named Samer el-Debek, the U.S. intelligence community reversed its belief that Hezbollah was unlikely to attempt attacks within the U.S.
“It’s our assessment that Hezbollah is determined to give itself a potential homeland option as a critical component of its terrorism playbook,” said National Counterterrorism Center Director Nicholas Rasmussen.

“We in the intelligence community do in fact see continued activity on behalf of Hezbollah here inside the homeland,” he added.
Hezbollah has never directly attacked the U.S. homeland, but Kourani, working for the Hezbollah-controlled Islamic Jihad Organization, was confirmed to have been conducting surveillance of FBI and U.S. Secret Service offices, as well as a U.S. Army armory and John F. Kennedy International Airport, all in New York City.
Will the death of Soleimani be the tipping point that causes these Hezbollah sleeper cells to finally strike on American soil? Despite the fact that Iranians are dancing in the streets and celebrating Soleimani’s death, it appears that terrorists don’t take too kindly to the assassination of their leader.
“While living in the United States, Kourani served as an operative of Hezbollah in order to help the foreign terrorist organization prepare for potential future attacks against the United States,” said U.S. Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers.
“Kourani told the FBI that he provided Hezbollah with details about security procedures, the uniforms worn by security officers, and whether the officers were armed. His surveillance, Kourani told the FBI, focused on exit points, security checkpoints, camera locations, baggage claim procedures, and what questions airport screeners asked passengers,” reported ForeignPolicy.com on the casing of both JFK and Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.
It’s quite evident that not only are there Hezbollah sleeper cells present and on stand-by in America, they have been doing their research. Should this terrorist organization decide to take revenge against the United States for assassination of Soleimani, it seems as though they have all the pieces in place. We can only hope it doesn’t come to that.
