19 Jan 2020  |  arabnews.com
Hezbollah's deep entrenchment in South America, particularly in the tri-border area of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil, has raised concerns about its potential for retaliatory attacks against the US following the killing of Qassem Soleimani. The group has leveraged the Lebanese diaspora to facilitate criminal activities such as drug trafficking and money laundering. Recent US actions have targeted individuals connected to Hezbollah's criminal operations, reflecting a broader effort to combat the group's influence. Political shifts in South America, with Brazil and Argentina taking a harder stance against Hezbollah under conservative governments, contrast with Venezuela's sympathetic view of the group. Security analysts warn that without a coherent response to Hezbollah's activities, the group could pose a significant security threat in the Western Hemisphere.
