BREAKING: Terrorist Bomber Captured at Southern Border


( – BREAKING NEWS NOW: A man caught by the United States Border Patrol attempting to enter the U.S. by illegally crossing the Southern Border has admitted to being an Islamic terrorist intent on detonating a bomb in New York City.

Specifically, a man from Lebanon, who says he’s part of Hezbollah, a group the U.S. considers a terrorist organization, was caught entering the U.S. without permission.

The man, named Basel Bassel Ebbadi, 22 years old, had plans to go to New York to attempt to make a bomb. This information came from documents from the Border Patrol shared with the New York Post.

In an official interview, Ebbadi shared that he had been connected to Hezbollah for seven years and actively participated for four of those years.

Currently, he’s being held in a secure facility in El Paso, Texas, after he crossed into the U.S. on March 9. Reports suggest he’s going to be sent back to his country.

Ebbadi caught the attention of the Border Patrol’s special terrorism team after he made threats. In an interrogation, he mentioned his training with Hezbollah was about jihad and how to kill.

Hezbollah, supporting Hamas, has been attacking northern Israel, causing many Israelis to leave their homes as the attacks get closer. The Israeli military is getting ready for a possible more significant conflict at their northern border as these attacks continue.

The leader of the Israeli military said in February that Hezbollah must face severe consequences for siding with Hamas against Israel.

U.S. authorities are worried that Hezbollah could also target Americans, both abroad and inside the U.S., as stated in a report from Politico.

The FBI’s Chris Wray highlighted in November the arrest of people in the U.S. linked to Hezbollah, noting the group’s interest in planning for possible actions in the U.S.

The Border Patrol has seen an increase in the number of people trying to enter the U.S. from the southern border who are on the FBI’s watch list for terrorism, as mentioned by the Department of Homeland Security last September.
