REPORT: HEZBOLLAH MILITANTS ENTERED GERMANY AMONG REFUGEES
“Since mid-2015 there are increased indications of fighters from Shi’ite militias entering Germany as legal refugees,” according to the intelligence report. “The indications regarding roughly 50% [of the fighters] show a direct connection to Hezbollah.”
The EU designated Hezbollah’s so-called military wing, Izzadin Kassam, as a terrorist organization in 2013.
Militants who entered Germany with no concrete links to a specific terror group had largely fought on the side of Shi’ite militias against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, according to the report.
The danger these Hezbollah members pose is difficult to assess without a close examination of the Islamists, the report read.
